    VINE is an automated victim notification system that allows victims of domestic violence and other crimes to register to be notified of an inmate's release from jail, and to get information on charges and bail amount. VINE provides information on the custody status of inmates who have been booked into any King County Department of Adult Detention facility.

    Victims and the general public will be able to call the VINE system toll-free, to verify whether an inmate is in custody, and register to receive automatic telephone notification upon an inmate's custody status change or obtain information on the VINELink website or call 1-877-425-VINE (8463). Callers will also be provided with information on additional victim assistance services. VINE is available in English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Russian, Tagalog, Chinese and Amharic.
