Repeat Offender Parole Enforcement

The Provincial ROPE (Repeat Offender Parole Enforcement) Squad is a multi-agency, provincial team that locates and apprehends parolees unlawfully at large in the province of Ontario, as well as anyone who:

  • Escapes from secure custody
  • Escapes from or walks away from non-secure custody
  • Becomes unlawfully at large by violating bail, parole, or intermittent sentence terms


The ROPE Squad also assists other police services with locating and apprehending high-risk dangerous offenders.

With members located strategically throughout Ontario, the Squad has five operational teams comprised of representatives from the Ontario Provincial Police and 14 municipal and regional police services. To that end, the Toronto Police Service is represented by two Detectives and seven Detective Constables.

The investigations and apprehensions conducted by the Provincial ROPE Squad are an excellent example of crime prevention as well as proactive and intelligence-led policing strategies that enhance public safety.
