Get notified - get the form

In response to the Sunday, July 29 story on pardons and insufficient victim notification, reader Nancie Gray wrote, “The victims of violent crimes, who are supposed to be notified when the violent offender is up for "early" release - there are some major gaps in that portion of the system as well.”
The best way victims can make sure they are notified of ANY situation involving a convicted individual, from a pardon request to an escape from custody, is to fill out the form, “Confidential Request for Notification of Status of Inmate,” and get registered. Find the form HERE.
Join the discussion. Do you think state officials should be doing more to locate victims? Do you think the Board of Pardons is giving out too many pardons, or too few? What do you think about the pardon process – is it open enough? What improvements would you like to see?
