IowaVINE Victim Notification

IowaVINE provides Victim Information and Notification Everyday so that victims of crime can obtain updated information, as well as real-time notifications by phone, email, text, or TTY, regarding the custody status of offenders. If you have been a victim or a crime or are concerned about the whereabouts of an offender you can use the link below to search for an inmate on the VINE website and sign-up for alerts.

VINE is a nationwide program so you can also use the system to follow the status of offenders at other facilities or even outside the State of Iowa. For information on the custody status and location of an offender by phone, you can contact IowaVINE at 1-888-7-IA-VINE (1-888-742-8463).
