What will this free service do for me?
This free service can let you know if a particular offender is in jail and give you other important custody information. Once you sign up, it can also call you at a phone number of your choice or e-mail you, or let you know when that offender is released, transferred, or escapes.
What do I need to do?
1. Call 1-866-972-7284 from a touch-tone phone and follow the directions.
For TTY Users: Please call 1-866-847-1298. A TTY operator will assist you in registering to receive updates about a specific offender.
2. If the offender is in a county jail, you can leave your phone number to be called if that offender is released, transferred, or escapes. Enter the phone number where you want to be reached, inlcuding area code, followed by the (#) key.
3. When the service asks, enter your own four-digit Personal Identification Number (PIN) code that will be easy for you to remember. Write it on the wallet card provided on the PA SAVIN Important Info page or in a safe place. The service will ask for the PIN code when it calls you.
4. If the service calls, listen to the message. When asked, enter your PIN code plus the pound (#) key. Entering the PIN lets the service know that you got the call, and will stop the service from calling you again.
