Sex offender register statistics

Learn about the aims of the Victorian Register of Sex Offenders and more information about the register.

From 1 January 2015, the Crime Statistics Agency (CSA) became responsible for processing, analysing and publishing Victorian crime statistics, independent of Victoria Police.

The Victorian Register of Sex Offenders became operational on 1 October, 2004.

The Register operates under the Sex Offenders Registration Act 2004 and aims to:

  • reduce the likelihood of registered sex offenders re-offending in the community
  • assist the investigation and prosecution of any future offences
  • prevent sex offenders from working in child-related employment or volunteer duties

Victoria Police, as the custodian of the Register under the Act has released statistics.

Victoria Police will report annually on statistics from the Register.
