Topeka, Kan. -- The Kansas Senate has passed a bill that would require the Department of Corrections to notify victims or their families if an inmate is scheduled to be released.
The bill would require the department to send notice at least 14 days prior to the release date, unless they are released due to court order, escape, or death. The measure passed 39-0.
In a news release, Vice Chair of the Judiciary committee, Senator Greg Smith says, "This simple service can provide peace of mind to a victim and/or their family and is good public policy.”
