2. Find Other Agencies That Can Help
If you are looking for case specific information, you must contact the victim services program in the community the offence took place in or was reported to.

3. Victim Safety
Victims of crime or persons protected by a Family Law Act protection order who have significant safety concerns can register to receive notification about the status of an adult accused/offender being supervised by BC Corrections. By registering for notification victims may be provided with on-going information about the status of an accused or an offender, including whether or not they are currently in provincial jail, when they may get out of provincial jail, what community they may be in, and what conditions the accused or offender may have to follow.
For more information on victim notification, please visit the BC Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General page.
