Conference on Victim Notification

April 22

Albany, NY

The 14th Annual Statewide Conference on Victim Notification will take place on Wednesday, April 22, 2020, at the Red Lion Hotel on Wolf Road in Albany, NY. Hosted by the NYS Sheriffs’ Institute, the conference takes place each year during National Crime Victims Rights’ Week. This year’s NCVRW theme is: Seek Justice | Ensure Victims' Rights | Inspire Hope.

Victim advocates and law enforcement officials gain a national perspective on Crime Victim Services, network with State and National Leaders in the fields of Criminal Justice and Victim Services, and learn about the latest advancements in victim notification services, including the VINE® Program and the Order of Protection Notification Project.

The VINE® program, administered by the Sheriffs’ Insitute, allows crime victims to learn the custody status of an offender, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, by telephone or online. Victims also can register to be notified if an offender custody status changes.
