More Victim Resources

  • Department of Juvenile Justice Victim Notification and Assistance - DJJ’s Victim Liaison helps ensure victims of juvenile offenders are properly notified upon the release of a serious offender.
  • VINELink - VINE is the nation’s leading victim notification network. It allows survivors, victims of crime, and other concerned citizens to access timely and reliable information about offenders or criminal cases in U.S. jails and prisons. Sign up for notices when someone is going to be released from jail or prison, or check if they are still in that system. 
  • NAAVI - NAAVI is the system that the Virginia Department of Corrections (VADOC) uses to assist victims and survivors with post-sentencing services and information.  Note: if an inmate is housed in a local jail, you will need to register separately with VINElink above in order to receive jail notifications. 
  • Virginia Victim's Fund - The Virginia Victim's Fund (formerly the Criminal Injuries Compensation Fund) is where people apply for funds to cover the cost of criminal injuries such as medical, mental, funeral, loss of wages, home security, and others expenses.
