The Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA), are a set of statutory partnership working arrangements introduced in 2007 under Section 10 of The Management of Offenders etc. (Scotland) Act 2005.

The purpose of MAPPA is public protection and the reduction of serious harm. In Scotland the MAPPA brings together the Police, Scottish Prison Service (SPS), Health and the Local Authorities, in partnership as the Responsible Authorities, to assess and manage the risk posed by registered sex offenders, mentally disordered restricted patients and other risk of serious harm offenders.

The Forth Valley MAPPA Annual Report 2018/19 describes how these arrangements are delivered locally and can be downloaded from the Community Justice webpage.
