WE RISE BY LIFTING UP OTHERS

 

Crime victims should be informed of their rights at every step in the post-conviction criminal justice process: during sentencing, while the offender is incarcerated, throughout the parole process, and when the offender reenters the community. The Post-Conviction Assistance for Victims (PAV) team combines the Department of Public Safety's post-conviction victim service programs, which include:

  • Statewide Automated Victim Information & Notification (SAVIN)

  • Restitution and Vitim Services (RAVS)

  • Post-Conviction Victim Advocacy Program (PCVAP)

 

Together we provide information and services to victims of crime throughout the post-conviction process.

 

Our goal is to ensure that crime victims have access to information & services that can meet individualized needs throughout incarceration, parole, and reentry.
