The mission of the Victim Services Division is to provide a central mechanism for crime victims to participate in the Criminal Justice System.
IVSS stands for the Integrated Victim Services System operated by the TDCJ Victim Services Division. IVSS is a free, automated service that provides crime victims and Texas Department of Criminal Justice Victim Services Division with vital information and notification 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This system will allow you to obtain information about offenders in TDCJ custody or on parole/mandatory supervision and to register for notification of changes in offender status, such as offender release. All registrations through IVSS are kept completely confidential.
If you are a victim of crime, surviving family member, witness or concerned citizen, you can create an account and register for notifications on offenders in TDCJ custody or on parole/mandatory supervision in IVSS. You may search for offender status information and update your account at any time. Click here to register now
