What is the Inmate Apology Bank?

There may come a time when you don’t want to meet face-to-face with the offender but do have an interest in receiving a letter from the offender.  This form of dialogue is a letter exchange between you and the offender.  This must be initiated by the victim; however the offender must agree to participate.  

You may want to hear from the person that committed the crime against you to see if the offender has taken responsibility or is sorry for their actions.  The offender may want to put into words the acceptance of fault or responsibility for their actions. 

If you are interested in learning more about this program, please contact the Office of the Victim Advocate at (800) 322-4472.
