Illinois Automated Victim Notification System (Illinois AVN)

The Illinois Automated Victim Notification System provides victims and concerned citizens with a toll-free number they can call for up-to-date information on the custody and/or case status of an offender. Illinois AVN operates through interfaces with the jail booking system, the Illinois Department of Corrections, the Illinois Department of Human Services, and circuit court clerks throughout the state. The Illinois AVN service is provided by the Illinois Attorney General and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.


Illinois Crime Victim Compensation Program
