Save the Children Welcomes Child Protection Register
Save the Children Welcomes Child Protection Offender Register
Save the Children welcomes the government’s moves to introduce a Child Protection Offender Register. Child protection is a priority for Save the Children’s development and humanitarian programmes locally and internationally.
We commend the New Zealand government for enabling progressive legislative changes to protect children from convicted offenders.
Such commitment to keeping children safe, is a demonstration of New Zealand’s leadership when it comes to creating protective frameworks and laws to protect them.
New Zealand joins countries such as the USA, Australia, UK and Canada that all have sex offender registers.
