NC SAVAN Resources

As part of North Carolina's commitment to support victims of crime, NC SAVAN (North Carolina Statewide Automated Victim Assistance and Notification) provides free, confidential notifications about an offender's custody status to victims, their families, and their circles of support. County jail inmates, state prisoners, probationers, parolees, and registered sex offenders are all included in this service.

How to Register: Direct Crime Victims

As a direct victim of crime, we want ensure you have access to all available resources. If your offender is incarcerated in a county jail, incarcerated in a state prison, or has been placed on state parole or probation, we ask that you register by calling (877) NC-SAVAN. Please press 0 to speak to an operator and provide your name, address, phone number, and email address. The process is still confidential and the offender will not know that you have registered.

How to Register: General Public

Registration is open to anyone. Simply search for the offender you'd like to receive notifications about and choose your desired delivery methods (phone, email, or text message). This process is confidential and the only information you must provide is the phone number or email address you'd like notifications delivered to.


North Carolina Prison Home Leave Program

The Home Leave Program allows offenders nearing release to make short visits outside the prison supervised by a an approved Home Leave sponsor.

The Department of Public Safety (DPS) is committed to keeping victims informed. DPS is currently developing automated messages to notify victims of scheduled Home Leave visits for offenders. Until that enhancement is complete, victims have access to the following:

  • Registered victims will receive an automated message from NC SAVAN when an offender becomes eligible for the Home Leave Program.
  • Once notified of the offender's eligibility for the program, victims can have prison staff contact them 5-10 days prior to scheduled Home Leave visits for that offender. (Instructions are provided in the Home Leave eligibility notification.)

If you are the victim and have questions, please contact Victim Services for Prisons, Probation, and Parole by calling toll-free (866) 719-0108.

For all other inquiries, please contact the DPS Communications office at (800) 368-1985.


Please visit the North Carolina Sex Offender Registry at for more detailed information about a Sex Offender's status. You can also sign up at to receive email alerts when a sex offender registers to an address in your community, to track a specific sex offender, or to map all sex offenders' addresses up to 5 miles away from any site you choose.
