Victim Notification: VINE

The IL VINE/AVN (Automated Victim Notification) System is a service through which victims of crime can use the telephone or internet to search for information regarding their offender’s custody status and register to receive telephone and email notification when their offender’s custody status changes.  Crime victims can also search and register for up-to-date information about their court cases. The service is brought to Illinois by the Illinois Attorney General’s Office.
