ICE - Department of Homeland Security
US immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), is committed to protecting the public and ensuring that the rights of victims are carefully observed. HSI administers the Victim Notificaion Program which allows eligible victims and witnesses to obtain reliable and timely information regarding a criminal alien's release from custody.
The City Code is revised periodically. Look here for updates as they become available.

Although ICE makes every attempt to control illegal entry into the United States, ICE cannot ensure that the offender will not reenter the United States illegally.
Once the criminal alien is placed in ICE custody, the Victim Notification Program will provide information to eligible victims and witnesses who register to be notified of release related activities.
Victims and witnesses must submit the "Victim Request for Notification of Criminal Alien Status" form.
ICE will make every effort to keep victims and witnesses advised of the release status of the offender. Registered victims and witnesses will be advised when the criminal alien is released from custody or removed.
Occasionally, ICE transfers criminal aliens between custodial facilities. ICE will not routinely notify victims or witnesses of these internal transfers. However, any victim or witness may learn the location of an offender by calling the Victim Notification Program.
If you have previously submitted a victim impact statement to the court or parole board, you may forward that statement to the Victim Notification Program and request that it be presented to the government’s attorney for consideration by the immigration judge.
