Offender information for crime victims statewide, 24-hours a day.

 
General Information
VINE is a free and anonymous telephone service that is designed to provide two important features to crime victims and other citizens: information and notification. VINE is available to callers 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
 
VINE monitors the custody status of offenders in the Department of Corrections and individuals currently on probation/parole/post-prison supervision.
 
The Oregon VINE service is available in English and Spanish. A live operator is available to provide assistance to anyone calling the toll-free number for any reason.

 
Information Calls
VINE will tell callers if an offender is in the custody of the Oregon Department of Corrections or under probation/parole/post-prison supervision supervision by local community corrections offices.
To search for information, callers will need to provide one or more of the following items:
  • Offender’s name and correct spelling
  • Offender’s State Identification Number ("SID Number")
  • JJIS Number for Oregon Youth Authority
    • Secondary search options if there’s more than one offender with the same name:
      • Race
      • Date of Birth
VINE will provide the caller with the following information about the offender:
  • Name of offender
  • Offender’s State Identification Number ("SID Number")
  • Current custody status
  • Location of offender: Prison name or community corrections location
  • Scheduled release date
  • Community supervision expiration date

 
Notification Calls
The VINE system will allow callers to leave a phone number if they want to be called automatically when an offender’s custody status changes, such as being released or transferred. The computer will also notify registered callers if their offender escapes, dies, or has a change in parole or probation/parole/post-prison supervision status.
Crime victims and concerned citizens may register for VINE’s notification feature by calling the VINE toll-free number. Callers will need to provide VINE with the following information:
  • A telephone number, including area code, where they can be reached for notification.
  • A 4-digit Personal Identification Number (PIN)
