Inmates Donate to the Foundation During National Crime Victims' Rights Week

In observance of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, Pat Tuthill spoke at Hardee Correctional Institute in Florida which has an inmate population of 1,600. A few months prior to the program, with the leadership of one inmate, he told others about the scholarships for homicide survivors. Since, several inmates gifted the Peyton Tuthill Foundation knowing the proceeds would directly benefit young survivors receiving the “Hearts of Hope Scholarships”. These gifts directly fulfill the purpose of Restorative Justice. As of mid-April $900 has been received; almost one scholarship for one victim. The Foundation appreciates the gift for young survivors. Other gifts may be on their way and updates will be posted.

A Day of Celebration Roll out of National Standardized Victim Notification System

Announcing the roll out of the first ever National Automated Standardized Victim Notification system, called ICOTS Vine. It is a 10 year dream turned reality for Pat Tuthill who has advocated for victims. Victims whose offenders transfer between states will be able to contact their state's Compact Office and sign up to be notified when the offender requests a transfer, is approved, departs, arrives, violates conditions of supervision, returns to the sending state, or when he or she is no longer under supervision. Victims of domestic violence and stalking will no longer have to guess on the status of the perpetrator and their own safety. The Peyton Tuthill Foundation has worked with the National Commission over the past 12 months to turn the dream into a reality by reviewing notification scripts and testing the system. Once the Victim Safety Brochure is complete, it will be available from this site.
