Victim Information & Notification Everyday (VINE)

Victim Information and Notification Everyday (VINE) is a service through which victims of crime can use the telephone or Internet to search for information regarding their offender's custody status and register to receive telephone and email notifications when their offender's custody status changes.

VINE is currently available in 46 states. If the inmate for whom you’re searching is in custody at a corrections facility that participates in VINE, you should be able to locate custody information on VINELink.



  • You can use the telephone to search for and register to receive notifications about the custody status of an offender — each state/county has its own toll-free VINE phone number.
  • You can search for and register to receive notification about the custody status of an offender via VINELink.

VINELink is completely free to the public. We are aware of other services that ask you to “subscribe to” or “pay for” their information. We assure you, we are in no way affiliated with those services.
