You may sign up for the NDCS Victim/Witness services to receive notification as a victim or concerned citizen.

***The NDCS Victim/Witness Notification is designed to provide you access to information that can be used to plan for your personal safety. Please do not rely only on these services for your protection. If you feel that you are at risk, take precautions as if the offender has already been released.  If you feel that you are in immediate danger, we strongly encourage you to contact local law enforcement (911).***
