Services We Offer
We want to hear your safety concerns
Individuals can communicate directly to the Victim Services Program regarding safety concerns. Individuals may also voice concerns related to the release planning of offenders. This information helps in determining whether the proposed release plan for the offender is acceptable.
Assistance with safety planning is provided by Victim Services Program staff when offenders classified as high risk are getting ready to release back to the community. The "Victim Wrap Around" process brings community resources together to assist the victim in developing a safety plan around the offender’s reentry into the community.
If you enroll for notification we can provide you with important information regarding the offender sentenced to prison. For information regarding specific types of notification and how to enroll, please go to the home page to make a selection on the offender crime box.
In some cases, a facilitated meeting may occur between the victim and the offender of their crime. This meeting occurs while the offender is in confinement within a Department of Corrections prison facility. Contact the Victim Services Program for more information about this process.
