High-Risk Recognizance Advisory Committee

The High Risk Recognizance Advisory Committee (HRRAC) -- comprised of a number of justice agencies in B.C. -- determines if high-risk offenders need further court-ordered supervision after they complete their sentences.

If HRRAC determines an offender requires further supervision, it will:

  • Apply to the court for a section 810.1 recognizance order if the offender is at risk of committing a sexual offence against a child under 16, or
  • Apply to the court for a section 810.2 recognizance order if the offender is at risk of committing a violent offence, which can include sexual assault, sexual assault with a weapon and aggravated sexual assault.

Recognizance orders are supervised by Community Corrections and may last up to two years.

The HRRAC is chaired by B.C. Corrections and includes members from:
