You may search by the inmate’s name, by a county, or Department of Corrections ID. If you are not sure of the spelling or only have a part of a name, you can use the asterisk (*) in front of or after the partial name to get more results.

TIP: For example, to search for all names that start with 'Rich', search for 'Rich*'. To search for names that end in 'son', search for '*son'.

Welcome to Notification And Assistance for Victim Inclusion (NAAVI). NAAVI is the system that the Virginia Department of Corrections (VADOC) uses to assist victims and survivors with post sentencing services and information. Victims may use this portal to create a request to receive notifications on inmates who perpetrated a crime against them and then manage their profiles after their requests are processed. NAAVI is a cost free service and the website is accessible 24/7/365. Based on the contact method choices made for your notification request (phone, text message, letter, email, and/or TTY), you will get messages if the inmate has a major status change such as (but not limited to) transfer, death, name change, and release. You may also search for inmates under the supervision of the VADOC, find helpful information and obtain resources or connect with Victim Services staff. If at any time you are concerned for your safety, please call local law enforcement or 911. You deserve to feel safe and it is your right to be informed. We are here to help.
If you want to request notification on an inmate, we need a way to reach you.
