Welcome to the Tennessee Board of Probation and Parole Victim Services home page.
If you are visiting this page, it is likely that you or someone you know is a victim of crime. We know crime has a tremendous impact on victims, family and friends of victims and the community as a whole. The Victim Services Division is here to help you navigate the probation and parole process. We cannot change what has occurred, but we hope to provide resources to make the journey ahead a little less confusing.
Most victims feel confused, angry and overwhelmed by the criminal justice system. We want to help you understand the process so you do not feel revictimized by it. We also want to provide you with information on many actions that occur regarding probation and parole. And we want to make sure you have a voice throughout the probation and parole process.
We invite you to explore our Victim Services pages. Here, you will find information about services we can provide, victim services personnel and links to other victim service agencies and referral services around the state and nation . If you or a loved one is a victim of crime, review our forms through the links at the bottom of this page to decide if you want to sign up for our services. Using these forms, you can file a notification request, a victim impact statement or a change of address. Doing so will ensure that you stay informed about the offender in your case.
Remember: you have the right to be notified of hearings and outcomes concerning the offender(s) in your case. I encourage you to fill out a notification request to receive this information.
You can also review more detailed information about taking part in the process here.
Community safety is the primary mission of the Board of Probation and Parole. Through your continued involvement with the Victim Services Division, we can help your voice be heard.

The mission of the Victim Services Unit is to
provide information, assistance, and support to

Process. These services will be administered with
respect and compassion and help lessen the
negative experience of victimization.
Our vision for victims and survivors of crime is
that their voices are heard, valued, and included
in a collective effort to hold offenders accountable,
prevent future harm, and enhance community safety.
