This report examines the child protection potential of community notification as legislated for through Megan's Law in the United States. It outlines the ways in which the law is implemented in different states and presents evidence in relation to claims made about the impact of the law by its supporters and detractors.;The report concludes that there is currently no evidence to suggest that Megan's Law protects children and very little is known about its impact on people's behaviour. However, there seems to be some evidence that there may be a number of unintended consequences, such as vigilantism.
