Corrections - VINE: Victim Information & Notification Everyday

1.877.VINE.4WA (1.877.846.3492)

Victim Information and Notification Everyday program is designed to give victims information about any changes in the status of the offender including; release, transfer, escape, and other custody changes. 

VINE Facts:

  • The offender will not know you are registered with VINE.

  • If you are not home, VINE will leave a message on an answering machine.  If there is no answer, VINE will keep calling back until you enter your PIN code or until 24 hours have passed.

  • Since VINE calls automatically when an offender's custody status changes you may get a call from VINE in the middle of the night.

  • Do not leave a phone number with VINE that rings to a switchboard.

  • The Kitsap County VINE service monitors in the custody of the Kitsap County Jail.

  • Do not depend only on the VINE service, or any other single program, for your protection.  Make VINE part of your safety plan.

  • You can leave more than one phone number with VINE.  Just call the VINE service again.

 VINE Information:  Write down the following information and keep in a safe place.

  • Offender Name
    Offender Number
    Your Four-digit PIN

Do not depend solely on the VINE service for your protection.  If you feel that you may be at risk, take precautions as if the offender has already been released.
