MOVANS stands for Missouri Victim Automated Notification System and is the automated notification system used by the Department of Corrections to provide information to crime victims about changes in the status of offenders in the department's custody. The system also provides a toll-free number that victims may call twenty-four hours a day to obtain information such as parole hearing date, where the offender is in custody, and scheduled release dates. To register for the MOVANS program the victim must contact the Office of Victim Services at 573-526-6516.
