VICTIM LIAISON SERVICE
Victims of crime can voluntarily register with Oberstown. A registered victim is entitled to seek information related to the release, transfer, early discharge and periods of temporary leave the offender has during the Detention Order. When victims of crime request, the Oberstown’s Victim Liaison Officer will enter into direct contact with them to inform them of any significant developments.
Oberstown continues to observe public health guidelines on the prevention of coronavirus on and off campus and we are continuously monitoring and adjusting arrangements on campus.
As a result and in line with the Government advice and recommendations on best practice, we are pleased that we are now in a position to invite visitors to campus, albeit in a reduced capacity. Videolink and virtual calls will continue as normal for those family members that find it difficult to travel.
In the interests of the health and safety of your family members, friends and the young people in our care, Oberstown Children Detention Campus are requesting that members of the public are conscious of the dangers of the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in the community.
