New legislation which introduces the tagging of sex offenders will now deal with the complex issues of releasing rapists and child abusers back into the communities.

But does the newly-passed Sex Offenders Amendment Bill go far enough when it comes to protecting the public from dangerous predators.

Nicola Tallant talks to journalist Eamon Dillon about the new laws and what they will mean for those completing their sentences. We also look at some of the heinous crimes of the 120 sex offenders who will be released from prison by the end of this year.
