Victim Information and Notification Everyday (VINE)
VINE is a service that offers victims the ability to stay informed about whether an offender is currently in jail, and if so, in what facility. By communicating with jail and prison booking systems throughout the country, crime victims and the general public can access information about whether an offeder has been released, transferred or has escaped from jail or prison. Persons who register with the VINE service can also be notified immediately of these changes via phone, text, or e-mail.

Tips for Using Technology: It is not possible to delete all the “footprints” of your computer or online activities. If you are being monitored, it may be unsafe to change your computer behaviors, like suddenly deleting your Internet history if that is not your regular habit.
If you think you may be monitored on your home computer, be careful how you use your computer since an abuser might become suspicious. You may want to keep using the monitored computer for activities, like looking up the weather or reading the news. Use a safer computer, such as a public computer at your local library, to research escape plans, look for new jobs or apartments, bus tickets, or ask for help.
Email and Instant/Text Messaging are not safe or confidential ways to talk to someone about the danger or abuse in your life. If possible, please call a hotline instead. If you use email or IM, please use a safer computer and an account your abuser does not know about.
