How do I register my order for protection in Indiana?

To register your protection order in Indiana, you need to fill out a Registration of Foreign Protection Order Form (PO-0119) and bring the form along with a certified copy of your order to the clerk at the court where you live. The clerk will send the information to the local law enforcement agency for entrance into the Indiana Data and Communications System (IDACS) as well as the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) Registry.1

If you need help registering your protection order, you can contact a local domestic violence organization in Indiana for assistance. You can find contact information for organizations in your area here on our Indiana Places that Help page.
