The number of MAPPA offenders by MAPPA area (based on police force areas) can be found at at: in the MAPPA Annual Report 2016-17 Area Tables column P.

The number of sex offenders in custody for a current sexual offence can be found at at: tab 1.2b cell F6 (sentenced and in custody) and tab 1.2a cell F6 (on remand and in custody).

The number of offenders in the community subject to the notification requirements under the Sexual Offences Act 2003 (Registered Sex Offenders) can be found at at: page 7.

We do not hold the number of sex offenders in the community who do not meet the threshold for notification or are no longer subject to its requirements.
