SAVIN For Corrections

PA SAVIN enables correctional facilities to be in compliance with select requirements of 18 P.S. ยง 11.214 of the Crime Victims Act, which mandates specific notification responsibilities to the prisons. The following links provide PA SAVIN information for corrections employees, including those who maintain the prison computer systems (in-house or outside IT personnel) as well as individuals in the administrative, booking/release, records and other departments.

Please Note:  If you are planning any upgrades or changes to your offender management system, contact APPRISS or the Program Manager listed below 30 to 60 days in advance to avoid unnecessary disruptions to SAVIN service.
