Victim Notification Scheme: guidance for victims of crime

Guide explaining what the scheme is, who can take part, what information you can expect to receive and when.

Offenders Sentenced to Less than 18 Months Imprisonment

For those victims of offenders sentenced to less than 18 months you are entitled to know only the date of the release or escape of the offender. If you would like to receive this information you can contact the Scottish Prison Service. They will not be able to provide the information immediately but will provide it to you as quickly as they can. Their contact details can be found on page 11 of this booklet.
