In Western Australia there is a list of addresses of pedophiles online -with certain restrictions as to who can view them.

If you found out there was one living near you, what would you do?

I don't know what I would do if I had young kids -I would constantly worry though and may even end up selling though no guarantees that it won't happen again!

Probably make sure we had no contact with the person living there since we have kids. That's about it.
I'd feel really uncomfortable and be glad that our kids are now in their early 20's and capable of looking after themselves!
I am not
freally sure what I would actually DO,though I know that I would be very concerned as I live fairly close to both Primatry and High schools.There are the 2 most deliughtful young boys living next door to me now as well,and they are like grandchildren to me,so I would worry enormously for their sakes.
I would,first of all, personally do a letter drop to all neighbouring houses, covering as much area as I could informing all parents and in fact, all people. I would, second of all, notify the police of the address and the circumstances (assuming that they didn't already know). If I had a megaphone I would probably put it to good use too.
There was a time when I probably would not have done so much but after reading newspapers, watching TV etc. and coverage of the Jimmy Saville and
Rolph Harris sagas, and realising that evil prevails when good men do nothing, these days it is obvious to me that people do need to speak up.
I don't have young children now but I think it is every person's duty to protect children and to give their parents at least a head start on paedophiles et al.
Call the police and inform them. I don't know what else you would do.
I think it's the ones you don't know about are the ones you need to worry about.

I guess you mean a pedophile who has been released from jail else you prob wouldn't know he was one, unless I guess you looked on the Register online.....I would be very protective of my granddaughter who I have once a week.. She is only child around me really

I don't have young children so not sure what I would do. I know that when my kids were young (and I was a single mum at the time), I probably would have moved.
Would be an expensive exercise, as you could end up being in same situation, if you weren't able to checkout 'who's who' in the 'burb!

1.Let the Police know.

2.Send a note to all other folk around,but make sure they do not think it is me.

3.Make (some kind) of contact with that person..& befriend him.

4.Keep my ears and eyes wide open.

5.Be ready to act the moment I knew something (may) be of concern.
It would be a constant worry, and I would definately keep an eye on him/her, and alert neighbours, hopefully we would keep an eye out for each other's children.
Not sure what I would do in that situation. I'd want to see what the person looked like and probably keep to myself whilst keeping an eye out for any possible activity around their house. This is assuming we knew there was definitely one living there.

My father and some of his friends were pedophiles. I have sometimes spotted a pedophile in a crowd as I recognise something in them and my hackles rise.
If I knew of one in my neighbourhood I would guard any children closely and possibly become obsessed that the pedophile couldn't commit their crimes.
I am always very protective of children because there are pedophiles out and about amongst us who have never been identified.
