Notification of Prisoner Releases due to COVID-19


With the announcement from Governor Inslee about the imminent release of hundreds of prison inmates in an effort to protect the prisoners from the COVID-19 pandemic, and the advisement that victims involved in these cases may not be notified in advance, we wanted to provide the community with resources that are available to provide some amount of notification.

If you wish to be notified of an offender's release from Jail, please sign up for VINELINK.  You will be notified automatically within 15 minutes of the offender's release.  This program is anonymous, and you can get to the website 2 ways – www.vinelink.com or go to the jail roster, and click the offender you want to register to be notified about - https://www.kitsapgov.com/sheriff/Pages/InCustody.aspx

 If you wish to be notified of an offender's release from Prison, there are a couple of ways to be notified. 

VINELINK (www.vinelink.com) also has an option to notify when an offender is being released from prison, although it is not as immediate as when they are released from jail.

 You can sign up for notification through the DOC Victim Notification Program.  WWW.DOC.WA.GOV/VICTIMS

You may be able to contact them directly at 1-800-322-2201, victimservices@doc1.wa

 If the prisoner was eligible for a "parole hearing", you may be able to receive information from the ISRB (Indeterminate Sentence Review Board).  You may be able to contact them at  www.doc.wa.gov/corrections/isrb,  (866) 948-9266, or (360) 407-2408

 Local groups are also available to assist with advocacy and safety planning:

YWCA (Assistance with Domestic Violence Issues) – 24 hour crisis line 1-800-500-5513; legal services (360) 479-0491; Shelter (360) 479-5118
