What is LAVNS?
The Louisiana Automated Victim Notification System (LAVNS) is a free, anonymous, computer-based service that provides victims of crime two important services. For defendant custody and court information, call 1-866-528-6748 and follow the instructions. Callers use basic information to search the LAVNS database. LAVNS will quickly provide the caller with offender status information and will provide information on upcoming court events and hearings.
Callers may choose to register for automatic notification through LAVNS. Victims may register to be notified of an offender's release from custody. You may also register for court information notification and will receive a call as new court dates are set for the defendant. Victims may also register with LAVNS online by clicking here.
