Offender Release Notification

Minnesota Haven Notification System

Minnesota Haven is the notification system for crime victims, witnesses, or those affected by a crime resulting in an offender being sentenced to the Minnesota Department of Corrections (MN DOC). Minnesota Haven offers victims and witnesses notification when an offender is moved, permits a dialogue with the offender if requested by the victim, and it allows a victim to voice an opinion regarding the offender's re-entry process following completion of his or her sentence. To register for the service, please complete the form and submit it to the Minnesota Department of Corrections Victim Assistance Program either by mail, email, or fax.
