If you are experiencing problems with a State Victim Notification Everyday (VINE) system, please contact the State organization responsible for the system. To locate the appropriate contact, visit the VINELink site and select your state from the map.
The Victim Information and Notification Everyday (VINE) system allows crime victims across the country to obtain timely and reliable information about criminal cases and the custody status of offenders 24 hours a day—via phone, email, text message (SMS) or TTY device. Please visit the VineLink website to register.
