Offender Status

VINE (Victim Information and Notification Everyday) is a free automated notification system that alerts victims and concerned citizens about a change in custody of an offender. The system gathers information from jail booking systems, prisons and mental health facilities.

What will VINE do for me?

Vine will tell you if an offender is in custody and will give you important status information. VINE allows you to register a phone number(s) and/or email address where you can be notified automatically when his/her custody status changes.
