"Vision 21: Victim Services Mobile App" project will create a mobile app to provide information, resources, systems navigation and service access for crime victims, service providers and community.
The ICE Victim Notification Program provides information to eligible victims and witnesses who register to be notified of a criminal alien's release related activities. Registered victims and witnesses will be advised when the criminal alien is released from custody or removed (also known as deportation).
How do I obtain my Victim Identification Number (VIN) and a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to access the Department of Justice's Victim Notification System (VNS)?
If you have not received your Victim Identification Number (VIN) and/or Personal Identification Number (PIN) for the federal Victim Notification System (VNS), please contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, or the U.S. Attorney's Office handling your case.
For additional information, please visit the Victim Notification System website and the Department of Justice's Victim Notification Program website.

VNS is a cooperative effort between the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the United States Postal Inspection Service, the United States Attorneys' offices, and the Federal Bureau of Prisons. This free, computer-based system provides important information to victims of federal crimes. In many cases crime victims will receive letters generated through VNS containing information about the events pertaining to the criminal case and/or any defendants in the case.
VINELink is the online version of VINE (Victim Information and Notification Everyday), the National Victim Notification Network that allows crime victims to obtain timely and reliable information about non-Federal criminal cases and the custody status of offenders 24 hours a day.
