What is VINELink?
VINE is the nation’s leading victim notification network. It allows survivors, victims of crime, and other concerned citizens to access timely and reliable information about offenders or criminal cases in U.S. jails and prisons. Survivors can register to receive automated notifications via email, text, or phone call, or check custody status information online at any time.
In addition to providing information to survivors about offenders and criminal cases, VINE hosts a provider directory to connect individuals with state-approved local and national service providers. The providers in the directory can help in a variety of ways including basic needs, legal assistance, counseling, and healthcare.
