Victim Information & Notification

Indiana Department of Correction Seal

Welcome to the Indiana Department of Correction’s Indiana SAVIN and ALERT Notification Service Site.


Indiana SAVIN stands for Statewide Automated Victim Information and Notification. The Indiana SAVIN program is a free, automated hotline that provides crime victims with vital information and notification 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This service will allow you to obtain offender information and to register for notification of a change in offender status, such as offender release. All registrations through Indiana SAVIN are kept completely confidential.

ALERT Notification Service

Notifying residents in an emergency used to be a long and tedious process. Officials had to rely on door-to-door contact or the media to get the word out. When an emergency occurs, officials can access the ALERT Notification Service and notify nearby residents within minutes. In the event of an escape, registrants receive detailed information about the escapee, including physical description and time of escape. Registrants will also be notified of emergency situations in and around correctional facilities.

There are no costs for these services and citizens can register now.
