    • • Denise E. O’Donnell, Director of the Bureau of Justice Assistance, within the U.S. Department of Justice:
      "Victims of domestic violence have grave concerns about their personal safety immediately following service of an Order of Protection. New York’s Family Court Order of Protection Notification System serves as a model for other states to provide victims with more timely and accurate information when Orders of Protection are served so they, and the victim advocacy community, can plan for the safety needs of victims and families. BJA is proud to have funded this innovative effort by the New York State Sheriffs’ Association Institute Inc. and its partners, which will undoubtedly save lives and lead to safer communities."
    • • New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo
      "The time immediately following when an order of protection is served can be the most dangerous for a victim of domestic violence," Governor Cuomo said. "But when armed with the technology that the SAVIN system provides, victims of domestic violence can receive timely notifications and take appropriate steps to protect themselves and their loved ones from further harm. I encourage victims to sign up for this service as soon as possible."
