A Victims Register allows victims of crime the option to be kept informed about changes to the status of an offender.
There are three victims registers in NSW:
Victims Services is responsible for maintaining the Specialist Victims Register for victims of forensic patients.
Corrective Services NSW maintains a register for victims of adult offenders who were found guilty of a crime, have been sentenced by the courts and are currently in custody.
Visit Corrective Services NSW for more information.
Youth Justice maintains the register for victims of young offenders who were found guilty of a crime, have been sentenced by the courts and are currently in custody in a Youth Justice centre.
Visit Youth Justice for more information.
