Abbotsford police have stepped up their efforts to protect local residents from released sexual sadist Donald Bakker by releasing a map warning of his whereabouts.
"Public safety is the Abbotsford Police Department's highest priority," said Const. Ian MacDonald in a press release on Friday afteroon.
"We previously shared information about Bakker because we believe that the citizens of Abbotsford have a right to be informed when exceptional circumstances such as these arise."
Bakker is the first person convicted under Canada's sex tourism laws for sexually abusing seven Cambodian girls between the ages of seven and 12. He was also convicted of sexually abusing three Vancouver sex trade workers.
Bakker eventually pleaded guilty and went to jail for seven years.
Freed from prison in June in spite of his refusal to participate in rehabilitation programs, Bakker originally settled in Penticton. He was soon back behind bars, however, after being unable to find a place to live, turning himself in to police on two separate occasions before breaching his 11 p.m. curfew.
The map covers an area that includes Bakker's current location and includes the boundaries of George Ferguson Way, Old Yale Road, Sumas Way/Highway 11 By-pass and Gladys Avenue.
Locals are urged to familiarize themselves with Bakker's photo and to report any infringements of his court-ordered restrictions.
Those include: No contact, direct or indirect, with anyone under the age of 18.
Not to attend public parks or public swimming areas where persons under 18 years of age could reasonably be expected to be present.
No contact with sex trade workers.
Not to possess any electronic device that connects to the internet.
Not to possess any weapons as defined by the Criminal Code or any tool or device that can be used for restraint.
Abide by a curfew of 11:00 pm to 6:00 am.
