Before a serious and violent offender is released from a federal prison or provincial correctional centre into the community, police determine if the offender presents a significant safety risk to the public.
If the offender does, they’re designated as a ‘high risk offender.'
When an offender is designated as high risk, the police carefully decide how to notify the public about their release. When police issue a high risk offender notice, only information that’s necessary for public safety is released.
A notice usually includes:
- the offender’s:
- general living area
- a police service contact
