vine mobile 300FRANKFORT, Ky. (11/5/13) – The Kentucky Department of Corrections is now providing a free mobile app version of its automated VINE (Victim Information Notification Every day) service. VINE is a free anonymous service that allows victims to register and be notified about changes in the status of Kentucky offenders.

The app, “VINEMobile,” allows individuals to use smartphones or tablets to register and be notified of changes in an offender’s custody status such as a release, parole eligibility or escape. The app allows the user to register with an email address or phone number to receive notifications. VINEMobile, just like the traditional VINE service, includes all county jails across the state, state prisons and inmates housed at halfway houses.

“As technology advances and the use of smartphones continue to increase, it is vital to provide this important service to crime victims in this easily accessed mobile app,” said Corrections Commissioner LaDonna Thompson.

A total of 30,118 searches for Kentucky offenders have already been made using VINEMobile.

VINEMobile is available for both Android and Apple devices. Users can search for “VINEMobile” in Google Play for Androids and in the App Store for Apple devices (if downloading from an iPad, the app only appears as an iPhone app, but will run on the iPad).

VINE may also be accessed at www.vinelink.com or call 800-511-1670.
