      Police say a man deemed to be at a "high risk of sexual violence against others, specifically children" is living in Vancouver.

      Trevor Leonard Smith, 44, has completed his prison sentence for sexual assault, possession of child pornography, and other crimes. According to the Correctional Service of Canada, he is "at a very high risk of relationship violence".

      In a news release, the Vancouver Police Department has described Smith as a white male, 5'10", 170 pounds, with grey hair and blue eyes.

      A judge has ordered that he "not be at any place where children and/or youth under the age of 16 are present or can be reasonably expected". He's also required to report relationships and friendships with women and not consume or possess alcohol or drugs.

      He's barred from using or possessing a computer system.

      Meanwhile, police say they've taken another high-risk sex offender, Christopher Schafer, into custody after he failed to return to his halfway house in late October.

      Schafer, 40, has walked away from residential correctional facilities on several occasions. "He was not committing additional offences when he was apprehended," the VPD said in a news release.
