Tennessee SAVIN

Tennessee SAVIN is a free and confidential automated service provided by the Tennessee Sheriffs’ Association that allows victims to track the custody status of offenders using a telephone and/or the internet. You may register by phone, text, or email to receive notifications if and when an offender dies, escapes, transfers, or is released.


  • Your registration is absolutely confidential- the offender will not know that you are registered with this service.

  • SAVIN only provides custody information for offenders in the state of Tennessee.

  • Because the service is automated, you will be notified as soon as an offender’s custody status changes, which may be at any hour of the day or night.

Register by phone: 888-868-4631 or online:

You must register separately for each type of notification and, if registering by phone, create a PIN that you will use to confirm when you receive a notification. If your phone number or email address changes, you must call or visit the website to update your information.
