Indianapolis Re-Entry Educational Facility
Indiana has adopted a procedure that allows you to file a formal complaint about changes made to the Sex and Violent Offender Registry entry about you, or about a refusal to make changes that you request to the Registry. The procedure allows you to file an appeal if your complaint is denied, but it has a number of rules that you must follow in order to preserve your rights to complain and to appeal. Those rules provide, among other things, that if you file a formal complaint in the proper manner with the local official who maintains the Registry, and if that official does not respond to you within 30 days, you may ask the Indiana Department of Correction to review your complaint. The rules provide, however, that after the 30th day with no response from the local official, you must submit your request to the Department within 7 days. If you wait longer than 7 days, it will be too late and you will lose the right to have the Department of Correction consider any and all the issues raised in your complaint..
