Center for Victims (CV) Offender Jail Release Notification program is our most critical victim service we provide.
This life-saving program enables crime victims and witnesses to be notified as to the whereabouts of their offender throughout the arrest and criminal justice process. This information provides victims with peace of mind and the ability to make sure they are safe upon release of the offender. The app will be available to all clients registered with our Offender Release Notification program for victims whose offenders are under the supervision of the Allegheny County Jail (ACJ).
The launch of this mobile app will provide an extra layer of safety for victims of crime, witnesses and their families and provide immediate information to victims regarding their offender’s release, transfer, or escape. Push notifications provide real-time information that empower the victim and help to ensure they and others in their lives are safe upon release of the offender from the county jail.
CV has a long history of innovative approaches that are victim-centered and provide vulnerable individuals and families with programs and services that save lives and empower victims to improve their lives. For more than a decade, Center for Victims has pioneered technology to enhance victim safety. CV has partnered with Truefit to bring this app to fruition and begin to help thousands of victims each year. Truefit brought to the partnership a passion for creating new software products that enable people to thrive. Aligning with CV’s focus on supporting victims, Truefit used a human-centered design approach to build an application that meets the true needs of victims in their time of crisis.
