Victim Notification

Victim Notification

VINE is the Illinois Victim Information Notification Everyday Service

Victims are usually given this information from the arresting officer

Crime victims and the general public can access information by calling the toll free number 866-566-8439.

Users register to be notified immediately of any change in the offender’s status, such as release, transfer or escape. When notification is triggered, VINE automatically calls the numbers the victim has provided and/or sends an email. Calls continue for a designated period of time until the victim enters a 4 digit PIN that the victim received at registration.

Now it’s even easier to find out the status of an offender and to register to be notified about any status changes. VINEmobile is the on-the-go version of VINE (Victim Information and Notification Everyday) that lets you access vital information –and the peace of mind that comes with it — right from your mobile device, 24 hours day, seven days a week. VINEmobile is completely free and anonymous for users.
