Working together to better protect the public
Welcome to the website for multi-agency public protection arrangements in Northern Ireland (PPANI), jointly operated by the police, probation, prisons, social services and other government and voluntary organisations
Sexual and violent crimes have a serious and long term impact on the victims and their families. They also create great public concern and fear about the ongoing risk to others, particularly to children.
The public protection arrangements aim to provide a multi-agency, co-ordinated system of risk assessment and risk management that will be effective in reducing the immediate and long term risk of sexual or violent re-offending.
This website hopes to provide you with relevant information as well as an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about these arrangements.
