LAVNS Louisiana Automated Victim Notification System
LAVNS is a service provided by the LCLE in cooperation with the Louisiana Sheriffs’ Association (LSA), Louisiana District Attorneys’ Association (LDAA), and the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections (DOC).

LAVNS will monitor the custody status of adult inmates in all parish jails and state prisons. By calling our LAVNS LINE (866-LAVNS-4-U) or by accessing our website at the above link, you may inquire about an offender’s status and, optionally, register to be notified upon any change to that offender’s custody status (i.e., release from jail, transfer to another facility, etc.). 

LAVNS is FREE to victims who may call LAVNS ANOYMOUSLY and as often as they wish to register or to determine an inmate’s current status.
