Offender Location and Release Notification
When an offender is incarcerated, the Victim Witness Assistance Center can help link victims with resources so the victim can be notified when the offender is released.
Resources for victims to become informed of an offenders release or location include:
When the offender in your case is sentenced to state prison in the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR), and you are the victim of crime, victim's next of kin, witness, or concerned citizen and you would like to receive notification complete the CDCR 1707 form online. Or, you may return it to your victim advocate to mail to CDCR; we will make a copy and scan it into our system before sending to CDCR.
