Tougher Conditions For NSW Offenders Out On Parole

New parole reforms are being introduced to monitor criminals deemed to be serious sex offenders, but it's not retrospective for those already out in the community.

In the wake of the recent Kogarah Dance Hall attack on a young girl, changes are being rushed through NSW Parliament to ensure offenders are monitored 24-7 by wearing electronic trackers.

There'll be a one strike policy for serious offenders, meaning if they breach conditions of their parole, they'll be immediately reported and possibly thrown straight behind bars again.

Permanent monitoring of serious sex offenders will be for those crimes which carry jail terms of at least seven years.
