Keeping Children Safe

Child Sex Offender Disclosure Scheme

Keeping Children Safe logo

Keeping Children Safe has now been put into practice in Lothian and Borders and Strathclyde Police Force areas, after successful roll-out in all other regions of Scotland. The scheme means that parents, carers and guardians of children under 18 can ask the police if a person who has contact with that child has a record for sexual offences against children, or other offences that might put their child at risk. If it’s found the person in question does pose a risk of causing harm to the child concerned, information may be given to the parent, carer or guardian as a protective measure. If there is serious or immediate risk, measures to protect that child will be taken immediately. However, if you think a child is in immediate danger, phone 999 and tell the police.
