Understand the impact residency restrictions for sex offenders have on deterring crime and protecting communities.

This topic is intended to give you an overview of the widespread use of restrictions on where sex offenders may live around the country. We will look at what works and what doesnt work in efforts to manage residential placement for sex offenders in the community. You will learn about the rationale for these restrictions, what the research tells us about the effectiveness of these restrictions in deterring crime and protecting communities, the collateral consequences of these restrictions and the impact those have on community safety, and how communities are affected by sex offender housing.
