Victim notification register

Victim notification gives victims of serious crime, who are registered on the victim notification register, a way to stay informed about the person who offended against them.

Under the Victims' Rights Act 2002 you may be eligible to receive notifications if:

  • you have been a victim of sexual violation or a serious assault
  • the offence included serious injury or death of a person
  • you have ongoing fears for either your own physical safety or the safety of a member of your immediate family

Note: A parent or legal guardian of a child or young person under the age of 17 who has been the victim of an offence, are also deemed to be a victim under the Act.
