This can either be where the risk has been clearly demonstrated or where the risk cannot be measured e.g. where the licensee fails to report on a regular basis or is out of contact entirely. Recall can be effected where an offender: i. Exhibits behaviour similar to behaviour surrounding the circumstances of the index offence; ii. Exhibits behaviour likely to give rise (or does give rise) to a sexual or violent offence; iii. Exhibits behaviour associated with the commission of a sexual or violent offence; or iv. Is out of touch with probation and the assumption can be made that any of (i) to (iii) may arise.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
