VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Police are warning you about a high-risk sex offender who is now living in Vancouver.

The VPD says 25-year-old Tristan Vickers is living at a correctional halfway house in the city, and poses a risk of “significant harm” to the public’s safety.

Vickers is serving a 10-year supervision order for break-and-enter, committing an indictable offence, as well as sexual assault causing bodily harm.

“Vickers was tried and convicted as an adult,” a release reads.

He’s bound by a number of different conditions as part of his long-term supervision order. They include not entering a private residence without prior written permission from his parole officer, immediately reporting all relationships with females to his parole officer, and not consuming, buying or having alcohol or drugs that are not prescribed to him.

Vickers is described as an Indigenous man who is 5’10” tall, and weighs 172 pounds. He has short brown hair and blue eyes, and normally wears glasses.

Here’s a full list of the conditions that he’s bound by:

  • He is not to enter any private residences or dwellings without the prior written permission from his supervising parole officer.
  • He has a curfew from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m., except for work-related reasons and with his parole supervisor’s written agreement.
  • He must immediately report all intimate sexual and non-sexual relationships and friendships with females to his parole supervisor.
  • He is not to associate with any person known to or have reason to believe is involved in criminal activity.
  • He is not to consume, purchase or possess drugs other than prescribed medication taken as prescribed and over-the-counter drugs taken as recommended by the manufacturer.
  • He is not to consume, purchase or possess alcohol.

You’re asked to call 911 immediately if you see Vickers violating any of these conditions.
