Notification Systems

Victims of crime have the right to be notified when an offender is released, transferred, or escapes from a county jail or state sentence.

To sign up for notifications, you must register with the Statewide Automated Victim Information and Notification System (PA SAVIN). You can do this by clicking here or calling 1-866-972-7284.

If the offender is serving a state sentence (24+ months), you have the right to additional services and notification not available to the public. To receive these services, register with the Office of the Victim Advocate.
