How do I qualify for the Victim/Witness Notification Program?

To qualify for the Victim/Witness Notification Program, you must be a victim, next of kin, or the parent/guardian of a minor victim of a violent or sex offense.

You may also qualify if you have served as a crime witness in a court proceeding or any person specified in writing by the prosecuting attorney.

You are eligible to be a part of this program for as long as the person who committed the offense is under the supervision of DSHS. We will send you notices before a planned release or transfer. We will also attempt to call you as soon as possible following an escape. We will notify you of scheduled court hearings regarding release decisions, when appropriate.
