St Helena: Sex Offender Diversion Treatment

Funding has been obtained under the Overseas Territories Diamond Jubilee fund to allow Mr Tim McInerney, a leading Forensic Psychiatrist with great experience of working with sex offenders in the UK and in the Falklands, to visit St Helena and make specialist assessments of sex offender prisoners currently serving sentences in HMP Jamestown. This also provides the opportunity for a number of further follow up video link remote sessions. The visit will enable Mr McInerney, a recognised expert in his field with enormous experience in the UK, to fully assess the island’s requirements for reducing reoffending and set the agenda for our new specialist probation officer Victoria Kellett. Victoria will be arriving in October working to develop our local Offender Managers in all aspects of Probation work in addition to the specialist work with sex-offenders.

 

Chief of Police Peter Coll said “I would like to congratulate our Prison Manager Martin David and our FCO Prison advisor Keith Munns for their hard work to make this happen. This is a good step forward and provides real evidence of progress in developing proper and necessary diversionary treatment to reduce the likelihood of re-offending. This is an example of our ongoing and active commitment to Safeguarding Children, taking action to build a safer St Helena.”

 

Additionally, St Helena has this year introduced a multi agency Management of Public Protection Arrangement meeting cycle as well as a Sex Offender Register for better monitoring, tracking and control of offenders.
