Child wellbeing and protection laws in NSW
Information about the legislation governing child protection in NSW.
Child Protection (Offender Registration) Act 2000
The Child Protection Register was established by the NSW Police Force in 2001 under the Child Protection Offender Registration Act 2000 (CPOR Act).
The CPOR Act requires offenders who have been convicted and sentenced for certain offences involving children or child abuse material to register with police when they re-enter the community.
The information provided by each registrable person assists the NSW Police Force to investigate offences against children and through monitoring, intervene and prevent risks to other children.
Further information about the Child Protection Register can be found on the NSW Police Force website.
