What is PA SAVIN?
PA SAVIN stands for Pennsylvania Statewide Automated Victim Information & Notification.
It is a free, confidential and automated service that helps victims, law enforcement and community members keep up to date on the status of an offender housed in a county jail, state prison or under state parole supervision within the Commonwealth. PA SAVIN allows you to receive specific information about an offender's custody status, such as an inmate's release, transfer or escape.   
Registration for automated notifications only should be one part of a comprehensive safety plan for victims of crime. 
If you are a victim of a Pennsylvania crime and the offender is serving a state sentence (24 months or more), you have the right to receive additional services and notifications not available to the public.  To receive these services and notifications, you must register with the Office of the Victim Advocate.   If you are a victim of crime and register with PA SAVIN only, you will NOT be notified when an offender is being considered for release. 
Please call 1-800-322-4472 or go to to learn more about the Office of the Victim Advocate.
