Developing and Enhancing Statewide Automated Victim Information and Notification (SAVIN) Programs: FY 2009 Competitive Grant Announcement: The Statewide Automated Victim Information and Notification (SAVIN) Program helps protect crime victims from further victimization and ensures their legal rights are upheld by providing registered victims with timely and accurate information about any changes to the status of their offender (e.g., trial dates, times, or changes; probation hearings; inmate relocation; and offender release). This information enables victims to fully participate in the judicial process while maintaining total anonymity. BAJA is seeking applications to either implement new or enhance existing SAVIN Programs.
