Who can use the VINE Service?
In most cases VINE is an open service available to anyone in the community who would like custody information about an inmate or register to be notified of an inmate's release. Victims of crime who have previously provided information to the arresting agency may be automatically registered to participate in VINE. All others may participate by calling the toll-free VINE hotline in your area.
