The victim/witness coordinator may also be able to help you retrieve property of yours that was taken into evidence and tell you how to enroll in the Bureau of Prisons Victim Notification Program.

If you have additional needs, contact the victim/witness coordinator to determine what additional services may be available. The address and phone number are listed on the back cover of this handbook.
