Paul's Law is a campaign were in child murder cases; where there is any evidence of a sexual assault the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) should always convict the offender for all the crimes committed. With all offences acknowledged the victims get all the justice they deserve, and so that if the offenders are ever released, the full extent of all real dangers they actually pose to the general public - can be properly and officially recognised and managed. Consequently all convicted paedophiles who murder should be included on the sex offenders register for life - and that this policy should be retrospective. Paul's law would work in partnership with, Sarah's law a system that permits parents to check if an individual who has close regular contact with heir child has a history of child sexual offences.
Whilst Paul's Law is more of a principle than a Law, it is necessary in child protection as only a minority of child sex offenders have criminal records and are known to the police. Therefore it is imperative that those sex offenders that are known to the police have their offence fully acknowledged and registered in order to effectively manage children's safety.
