What is VINE?
VINE stands for Victim Information and Notification Every day. VINE's purpose is to assist crime victims and other concerned persons by providing continual access to inmate custody and case information via the telephone.

This 24-hour information hotline allows crime victims to verify the custody status of an inmate and automatically notifies registered users if the inmate has a change in custody or case status (court information if applicable).
