The Winnebago County Sheriff’s Department unveiled the automated victim notification system called AVN.
Victims of crime or concerned citizens can register up to two phone numbers with AVN.
AVN will automatically call you when the status of the alleged offender changes. You will be notified of court appearances, if bail is met, if the person has been transferred to another prison.
The alleged offender will not know you are registered with AVN.
