The Calgary Police Service said members of the public are advised that the intent of the process is to enable members of the public to take suitable precautionary measures and not to embark on any form of vigilante action.

The Calgary Police Service High Risk Offender Program (HROP) monitors offenders who have been released by the courts to the Calgary community and who have been determined to have a high-risk to reoffend. With law enforcement partners, officers in HROP assess an offender’s risk factors and use a number of tactics to ensure they are abiding by court-imposed conditions to manage their risk to the community.
