Forensic Mental Health provides services to offenders who are considered mentally impaired to have committed the offence, or mentally unfit to stand trial.
The coordinator of the Forensic Mental Health Victim Register gives victims key information including:
- court decisions relating to forensic offenders
- prospective release dates
- escapes from detention and re-admissions
- when the offender's term in detention or under supervision ends.
The Coordinator will also let you know about your rights - such as the right to make submissions about the possible release or grant of leave to a forensic offender.
You will not have to apply to be on this register. Instead, the Director of Public Prosecutions will provide your details to the team who will then get in touch with you to explain their role and invite you to register.
