Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements
Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements, or MAPPA, are the means by which agencies in Derbyshire work together to best protect communities from the serious harm that some offenders may still present after being convicted of a crime.
Established in England and Wales in 2001, the arrangements allow different organisations to share information about sexual, violent and other dangerous offenders, assessing and managing their risk of re-offending.
We work with a number of agencies in the city and in the county to support Derbyshire Constabulary, Derbyshire Probation Trust and HM Prison Service who monitor offenders through MAPPA. They are known as Responsible Authorities.
