This text concentrates on sex offenders and sexual offending and examines the treatment of, and regulations to be followed for, sex offenders. The issues facing those dealing with such offenders, from arrest to post release supervision, are fully covered and include investigation of sexual offences, trial procedures, sentencing, control, risk assessment, protection of the public, treatment, housing and protection of children and adolescent offenders.

The responsibilities of local authorities, the rights of the individual and of the community, the sexual offences register, employment restrictions and human rights questions are all considered. The Sexual Offences Amendment Bill, which proposes a reduction in the age at which certain sexual acts are lawful and an offence for persons ""in a position of trust"" to engage in sexual activity with a person under the age of 18, is also addressed.
