You are accessing information only PCs have, ie. PRF_FLAGGED(ch, PRF_NOHASSLE). If you call this for a mob, it makes no sense and thus gives you the error message.
To avoid it make sure only player chars are ever checked:
ie. instead of
if (!IS_NPC(ch) && PRF_FLAGGED(ch, PRF_NOHASSLE)) {}

The same goes for PLR flags - The name says it all.
