victim information and notification everyday (vine)

Victim Information and Notification Everyday (VINE) is a telephone service that provides victims, as well as concerned citizens, with inmate custody and case information and release notification. Examples of information include:

  • Current custody status and charges
  • Inmate location
  • Next court date and time
  • Inmate's scheduled release date

Call 1-877-674-8463 any time, seven days a week for offender information or to register for notification services.

For victim notification, you must register with VINE. VINE requires a telephone number where you can be reached and a 4-digit PIN. If an inmate is released from custody, the VINE service will call you every 30 minutes for 24 hours or until the call is confirmed. Calls are confirmed and stopped by entering your 4-digit PIN.
