Target: Gordon Brown

Petition Background (Preamble):

We owe it to our next generation !

Sarah's Law would give parents the right to controlled information about the whereabouts of predatory child sex offenders living in their area. It would enable parents to safeguard their children by contacting police in order to obtain details of high risk paedophiles who are known to reside within their local community.

This information would be strictly controlled by police and there would be strong penalties for anyone who abuses the information.

Sarah's Law is NOT a call for unrestricted open access to the Sex Offender's Register.

We start from the position that information should no longer remain the exclusive preserve of officialdom. We believe the public have the right to protection and they have the right to information'.

Lord Stevens - former Met Police Chief:

'Its all about a parent's right to protect their child, a child's right to be safe. 'If just saves one child from sex abuse, and the lifetime of nightmares that too often follow, then I'm afraid its worth all the inconvenience in the world for the
paedophile.'

'We Can't Change the Past - But We Can Definitely Change the Future'

Children don't get a second chance.

We believe its our right as parents - We recognise the problem - We commit to
the cause.
