Victim Information and Notification Everyday


What is VINE?

VINE is a solution that lets victims of crime and other concerned citizens access timely and reliable information regarding offenders. It is offered free of charge to registrants, is completely confidential, and features multiple language support. Offering peace of mind, the VINE service lets victims call a toll-free number, visit, or use the VINELink mobile app to anonymously check on an offender’s custody status. Victims can register to receive automated notifications about changes in custody status via their choice of format: phone, email, or text. TTY (hearing impaired) service is also available.


In addition to offender custody status information, VINE also offers protective order notifications, and court notifications and reminders in some states. 


How current is VINE?

VINE information is as current as the data received from jail facilities. If you think the data is out of date, call the jail directly for an update and initiate your personal safety plan.

Why can't I find the offender or court case I'm searching for?

VINE provides information about offenders who are currently in custody or who may have been recently released from custody. If your search does not find the offender, contact the facility where you believe the offender is housed to ask about his/her custody status.
