New mobile app provides state and county offender custody information to Washington crime victims

This new mobile app is hands-on and immediate,” Mitch Barker, Executive Director, Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs, said.  “Victims, advocates, law enforcement, and the public can use the app to quickly and easily register for instant offender movement notifications.  It’s another piece of a community’s safety plan.”  WASAVIN  has provided information and notifications about offenders in custody since 2007.
