The Regina Police Service has issued a public advisory regarding a resident who is considered a high risk to reoffend sexually or violently.

46-year-old Kelly Roger Furi, who has been living in the the Heritage neighbourhood of Regina since January 4, 2021, is in a residence which provides supervision and monitoring of his activities. Furi has a criminal history which includes violent sexual offences and has a history of reoffending as an adult.

In a release from RPS, Furi completed programming designated to address his risk factors during his time in jail. He has not made any progress in reducing his high risk to reoffend violently.

“Release decisions are made following the provisions of the Corrections and Conditional Release Act; these decisions are not made by police,” stated Regina Police in a news release. “This information is intended to enable members of the public to take suitable preventative measures, not to embark upon any form of vigilantism or other unreasonable conduct direct at this individual.”

Furi is described as a Caucasian man, standing at 5 feet 11 inches and weighing approximately 228 pounds. He has brown eyes and short grey and brown hair. Furi also has a moustache and beard, mostly grey in colour.

Police say he began serving his long-term supervision order on January 4 and is required to live at an approved residence. Furi also has to abide by the following special conditions:

– Must return to the residential facility nightly;
– Must not be in the company of sex trade workers;
– Immediately report all intimate sexual and non-sexual relationships and friendships with females to his parole supervisor;
– Not to be in or near areas where sex trade workers frequent;

– Follow a treatment plan/program to be arranged by his parole supervisor in the areas of family violence, anger, and sexual violence; and
– No direct or indirect contact with the victims or any member of their family.

Any member of the public who has questions or concerns is encouraged to contact the Regina Police Service. Incidents where Furi is in violation of his conditions should be reported to Regina Police or Crime Stoppers.
