When a Saskatchewan police agency believes that a convicted offender is a high risk to re-offend and that the public should be warned about him or her, it may decide to issue a public disclosure. Public disclosures provide the offender's name, a recent photograph and background information. The disclosure encourages members of the public to take reasonable steps to ensure their safety.

Cybertip.ca handles tips from individuals reporting the online sexual exploitation of children through child pornography, luring, children who are prostituted, and child sex-tourism. If a parent or child comes across information about the online sexual exploitation of a child the parent or child fills out an online report form. The form is reviewed by a trained analyst who then forwards the report, if appropriate, to the proper law enforcement jurisdiction.

The disclosure will assist in avoiding the risk posed by the individual, and the public interest in the disclosure outweighs the privacy interests of the individual. If the release of information is recommended, the Committee will also recommend what information should be released, how it should be released, and to whom.
Decisions of the Committee are carefully considered and based on review of information prescribed by the Act. This information includes risk assessments, criminal records, likely destinations for the individual, descriptions of the offences committed, and reasons the individual is believed to pose a significant risk of harm to others.
Individuals who are the subject of an application to the Public Disclosure Committee are advised in advance that an application has been made, and are afforded the opportunity to make submissions to the Committee in writing or on audio or video tape.
The advice given by the Committee does not bind the police agency making the request.
