PA SAVIN is Pennsylvania’s automated victim notification system. As a victim of crime, the service provides you with free confidential notification regarding an offender’s release, transfer or escape. The PA SAVIN service includes offenders under the supervision of county jails, state prisons and state parole.
If the offender is in a county jail, you, your family and your circle of support can receive notification on offender movements:
- When the offender is released from jail
- If the offender escapes
- If the offender is transferred to another location
- If the offender dies
For more information on receiving notifications and to register, CLICK HERE.
If you have any questions, you can contact SAVIN at 1-866-972-7284.
Victims of offenders in state prison or on state parole must register with the Office of Victim Advocate (OVA) to access additional rights and services available to them. These victims can register for PA SAVIN and these additional right and services at www.ova.state.pa.us or calling 1-800-322-4472 or 1-800-583-6399 (1-800-349-1064 TDD). Just registering with PA SAVIN will not register you with the office of the Victim Advocate.
No one should depend solely on this service or any other single program for protection. If you feel you are at risk, take precautions and contact your local victim services program.
