A new government proposal could ensure that killers, abusers, and pedophiles remain behind bars forever.

The high-risk offenders law to keep Australia's worst criminals behind jail if they pose a significant risk to the public was announced in the parliament of Western Australia on Wednesday.

The proposed bill would also extend the powers that sex offenders keep away from the public through permanent detention or a surveillance assignment.

A new high-risk text council would be established to ensure better coordination between the relevant sectors so that they could better manage more serious offenders.

Prime Minister Mark McGowan and lawyer John Quigley announced the plans on Wednesday.

& # 39; Our children, the elderly, and law-abiding Western Australians have the right to feel safe in their community, & # 39; McGowan said WAtoday.

& # 39; With the new laws, courts can keep the most dangerous criminals behind bars, in line with the expectations of the community. & # 39;

The bill comes after Mr. Quigly echoed the community's concern about the release of a dangerous sex offender from Perth.

"We have made these laws as strict as we can to stay on the good side of the constitution, we do not want these laws to be challenged in the Supreme Court and crushed," he said.

Mr. Quigley said that the bill would not only target people with sexual crimes, but also people who were convicted of murder, manslaughter, and serious physical injury.
