The Corrective Services New South Wales (CSNSW) Victims Register may share certain information about offenders who are serving a sentence in New South Wales as a result of a criminal act against victims. We aim to provide you with a responsive and supportive service to support you during this difficult time.

You can apply to go on the Victims Register if:
There are situations in which more than one family representative can be registered. If this could apply to your circumstances, please give us a call to further discuss the issues.
Anyone who was not directly involved in the offence for which the offender is currently sentenced, such as:
Any crime for which an offender has received a custodial sentence.
On request, we will provide you with an annual update of the offender’s location in custody and security classification.
If an offender is eligible to be considered for unescorted leave or parole, the Victims Register will contact registered victims to explain the upcoming process and let them know whether they are able to make a submission.
The purpose of the submission is for registered victims to express their views and request any conditions that they feel should be imposed on the offender, should leave or parole be granted.
Placing a submission is optional and victims should not feel obliged to provide a submission. The Victims Register can provide assistance with preparing a submission. If leave or parole is declined, a victim’s submission can be carried forward to the next consideration. Submissions are always held confidential and not released to an offender, unless a victim consents.
For more information about the parole process, please read our information booklets:
You can apply using the Victims Register Online Application Form.
If you are unable to use the online application form then you can apply using the Victims Register PDF Application Form (PDF, 1.8 MB).
After an application is submitted, the Victims Register will always contact the victim to confirm that their registration has been finalised.
For further information about information on our website or to request information about an offender, please contact the CSNSW Victims Register during business hours (9am-5pm, Monday to Friday).
