Victim Services Program

If you feel that you are in danger, or if the behavior is in violation of a valid court order, we strongly encourage you to contact local law enforcement immediately.

Enroll for notification services

Victims can be notified when offenders move through the prison system and when they are released to the community. Participation in this notification program is not automatic. You must enroll for notification.

Enrollees in the Victim Services Program can include victims, witnesses, family members of deceased victims and guardians of minor children.

Reporting unwanted behaviors

If you are being harassed, threatened, or are receiving unwanted communication of any kind from an offender in a DOC facility or under the supervision of DOC in the community, please contact the Victim Services Program at (800) 322-2201. Our staff will assist you in getting the unwanted behavior stopped and assist you with any necessary safety measures.

In addition to providing notification, the Victim Services Program offers community members assistance with safety planning and referrals to other resources that may help.

Let us know when you move

If your address, email address or phone number changes, call us or email us to let us know. The Victim Services Program will not be able to notify you of the offender’s status if you do not report changes in your address, email address or telephone number.

If at any time you wish to discontinue your participation in the notification by US mail or registered email service, you may do so by submitting a written request to our office or by emailing us.
