How to Register

On behalf of the Scottish Ministers, the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service is responsible for determining who is eligible to register on the VNS. If you wish to join the scheme and do not have the relevant applications form which allows you to do so please contact Victim Information and Advice (VIA) who will be able to assist.  Their contact details are as follows:-


Telephone: 0844 561 3455/2417



If you are a victim of an offender sentenced to less than 18 months you do not need to register. You are entitled to know the date of release of the offender or if they have escaped from custody. If you are the victim and wish to receive this information please contact us.
