Victim Register

 
The Victim Service Unit in the Department for Correctional Services maintains a Victim Register.  Registered victims are entitled to information about the offender if he or she is in prison, if he or she is serving a Community Service Order or a Bond.

Offender is in Prison

In order to register as a victim of crime and be placed on the Victim Register, a victim needs to show that:

  • he or she is a victim of a criminal offence 
  • the offender he or she wishes to register against is under the supervision of the Department for Correctional Services
  • the offender he or she wishes to register against is in prison in relation to the offence, or offences, for which that person is a victim

A registered victim is entitled to the following information:

  • the name of the prison in which the offender is currently imprisoned
  • sentence details
  • security classifications
  • details of any transfer of the offender from one prison to another
  • date and circumstances under which the offender will be released (for example, on bail, leave of absence, home detention or parole)
  • escape from custody and return to custody

Offender is Serving a Community Service Order or Bond

If you are the victim of crime and the offender is serving a Community Service Order or Bond, you are eligible to apply for information about the order or bond.

You should be told, on request, if the offender was ordered to undertake community service - whether the offender completed the community service; and, if the offender was subject to a bond - whether the conditions of the bond were complied with.

To register as a victims of crime and receive this information, you must be the victim of the offence for which the offender has received the order or bond.
