UK - Police have a duty to protect the public by unilaterally disclosing personal information about sex offenders. True or false?

Police have a duty to protect the public by disclosing personal information about sex offenders without the consent of the offender.

Thus, the police have a right to inform other tenants that you are a convicted sex offender if there are females at your new address and the Male sex offender is deemed to present a risk to the other tenants.

By law, the police have a right to disclose such information, either with, or without your consent.

Is this a DEFINITIVE and accurate description of UK law in 2019?
