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.
Once a victim has applied, police determine a victim's eligibility under the Victims' Rights Act to be on the victim notification register.Find out more
A victim can apply to be on the register at any stage after an offender has been charged.Find out more
