Victim Information & Notification Everyday (VINE)

1-866-984-6343

What will VINE do for me?

VINE will inform you if an offender is in the Ada County Jail and if that inmate is released or transferred.

What do I need to do?

Call 1-866-984-6343 and register. You will need to give a phone number where you can be reached. You will also need to make up a four-digit Personal Identification Number (PIN) you can remember. VINE will ask for that PIN when it calls you later.

VINE Facts:

  • The Ada County VINE service only includes offenders in the custody of the Ada County Sheriff's Office.
  • 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 for a designated period of time, or until the person being called enters a four-digit pin.
  • Since VINE calls automatically when an offender’s custody status changes you may get a call from VINE in the middle of the night.
  • If your phone lets you block calls from unknown numbers, calls from VINE will be blocked. You must disable the blocking feature to get the calls.
  • You can leave more than one phone number with VINE. Just call the VINE service again.
  • Do not depend only on the VINE service, or any other single program, for your protection. Make VINE part of your safety plan.
