The Correctional Industrial Facility’s alert notification system provides instant notification of prison escapes and other Department of Correction facility emergencies to interested Hoosiers that sign up for the free service.

How the system works:

1. Those interested may register by calling toll-free at (866) 949-2537.

2. Callers will be asked to provide their telephone number(s) and the ZIP codes of the facilities from which they wish to receive notification.

3. The system will automatically call those registered if an escape or emergency occurs.

4. The system will attempt to call registrants for up to 12 hours until they, their voice mail or answering machine receives the message.

5. A follow-up message will be sent notifying registrants of the offender’s re-capture or the resolution of the emergency situation.
