If an apology letter is screened and approved for further processing, the VSD will attempt to contact the victim to inform them of the letter, and offer them the choice of receiving the letter.
The Tx CVC was established and operated by the Governor’s Office in 1983 until its official transfer to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) Victim Services Division (VSD) in March of 1996.
Registrants must specifically request to receive this notification even if we have their contact information on file.
Registrants may easily opt-out of the text service by contacting the TDCJ VSD.
The system provides over 80 points of possible notification concerning several phases of an offender's incarceration and the parole review process.
If you are a victim of a crime, surviving family member, witness or concerned citizen, and would like to register for notification on an offender who is in TDCJ custody or on parole/mandatory supervision, please contact our office at (800) 848-4284 or by e-mail at [email protected]
