Special centres plan for sex offenders
The proposal follows problems in relocating offenders
The Home Office is reported to be looking at creating special facilities for housing freed paedophiles.
New centres for treating and holding sex offenders released from prison could be set up after a series of high-profile cases.
Oliver was released last September after serving 10 years of a 15-year sentence for his part in the sex killing of Jason Swift, 14, during a homosexual orgy in 1985.
Gill Mackenzie, vice-chair of the Association of Chief Officers of Probation said the plan for special facilities was being considered by the government's steering group on housing sex offenders, in conjunction with the Home Office.
Original problem remains
However, the plan does not help solve the immediate problem of housing Oliver or others like him.
Ms Mackenzie said: "Our original problem remains and as all our investigations into the existing options have been explored and failed, we will have to start looking to create a resolution of our own.
"This must both satisfy the probation, police and Home Office criteria for public safety, treatment and supervision."
Paedophile back in custody
Another freed paedophile, George Power, has been taken back into custody after breaching the conditions of his release.
Power was seized on Friday on Home Office instructions following advice from Essex Probation Service.
The 61-year-old was released on probation two months ago after serving four years of a seven-year sentence for indecently assaulting boys.
He was allegedly spotted by reporters near children's play areas.
