Victim Notification

Pennsylvania mandates that victims of violent crimes are to be notified of any change in the offending inmate's status, such as:

  • Bail release
  • Escape
  • Transfer to another institution
  • Work release

Our Policy

The Venango County Prison embraces this mandate and takes it a step further.  

Whenever a person is committed to the prison for any reason and has committed a crime of violence against another person, the prison will notify the victim of any change in the inmate's status.
