100%.  Belt and suspender approach.  If between 2020 and 2022 any child was actually harmed by the guy, their parents are going to have a good lawsuit (which sucks, because it would be much better to have no harmed child, of course, but in my _academic_ opinion (i.e. this is not legal advice) the PD was really, *really* negligent here, especially as it's *known* that email is not a reliable method of communication, and if you aren't requiring an acknowledgement that's on *you*).
