Victim Information and Notification Everyday (VINE)
Notifications about the ADULT Offender
Oregon VINE is a free and anonymous telephone or internet based service that provides victims of crime two important features: information and notification. The VINE service is provided by the Oregon Department of Corrections and Oregon Department of Justice in cooperation with the Oregon Sheriffs Association and the Oregon Youth Authority. Oregon VINE monitors the custody status of offenders in county jails, the Department of Corrections, Oregon Youth Authority and individuals on probation, parole, or post-prison supervision. Information is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
This custody information includes:
- The location of custody
- Changes in parole or probation status
- Release information
- Transfer information
- Notification of escape(s)
- Notification of death
- Notice of some court appearances
You can use VINE service by calling (877) 674-8463 or by going to www.VINELINK.COM
VINE notification is available when the defendant is within the state and county jail and probation systems. Therefore, if the defendant is ordered bench probation, VINE cannot provide you with continued notification once the defendant is released from serving jail time in the county facility. After 14 days, the defendant’s information is no longer tracked in VINE. The Beaverton Municipal Court is responsible for the monitoring of the defendant’s case while the defendant is on bench probation.
Due to limited jail space, defendants may be allowed to participate in alternative sanctions and other programs that reduce their jail sentence. Therefore, it is not uncommon for a defendant to be released from the jail prior to serving the total number of days as ordered in the final judgment. This is beyond our control.
Oregon Department of Justice Address Confidentiality Program (ACP)
The Address Confidentiality Program (ACP) is a free mail forwarding service to help survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, trafficking, or stalking, protect their physical address information. Participants in the program are provided with a substitute address to be used in place of the address where they live.
