What should I tell victims about VINE?
Victims should know that VINE is a service that is available to assist them in determining the custody status of an inmate. All VINE telephone registrations are anonymous and free.

A VINE brochure will be available to victims with information on how to use the VINE service. Victims should also know that their family and friends can participate by calling the VINE hotline directly.
