Bermuda, the British island territory located in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of North America is considering a bill to create a sex offender registry.

The bill would also required people convicted of sex offenses to complete treatment while in prison or not be considered for parole or “good time” early release.

Unlike the United States’ sex offender registry, Bermuda is taking the more rational approach of all other countries with registries and not making their site open to the public or permitting information to be made available through freedom of information laws. It will only be known to law enforcement.

Additionally, unlike Florida and a handful of other draconian states, duration of registration will not be lifetime, but people will be eligible for removal after ten years.
