SC Statewide Automated Victim Information and Notification

The South Carolina Statewide Automated Victim Information and Notification (SAVIN) system will enable detention centers, the Department of Corrections, and the Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services to comply with victim notification laws. More important, the system will empower victims by allowing them to make a toll-free call or access a website for offender status information from anywhere at anytime. A crime victim may register for notification on the custody status of an offender who is either incarcerated in a detention center, jail, or the Department of Corrections or under the supervision of the Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services. Once registered, a victim will receive immediate notification regarding changes in the custody status of the offender, including transfer and release. SC SAVIN is a free service, available 24-hours a day in both English and Spanish.

To search for an offender, or to register to receive automated notifications when an offender's custody status changes, please call: 1.866.SCSAVIN (1.866.727.2846) or go to the VINELink website at:
