Arkansas Victim Notification Program

In 1997, in response to the need for victims of crime to be informed, the Arkansas Legislature passed Act 1262, which requires victim notification of changes in an offenders’ custody status. In order to accomplish these notifications, legislation authorized the establishment of an automated system. This system is known as the Arkansas VINE program. The Arkansas VINE program is a free automated hotline that provides crime victims with information and notification 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

General Features

This service allows crime victims to access inmate information and to register for notification of inmate release. Access to this data is available by using any touch-tone telephone. By entering the Arrest Tracking Number, ADC Number, or the offender's last name, the victim can find out if the offender is in custody, and be given the name and contact number of the custodial agency along with the parole eligibility date and sentence expiration date. Registration for notification is also available by using a touch-tone telephone. Once registered, the VINE system will notify the victim of changes in custody status as listed below. The system will call a registered victim every 30 minutes for 24 hours or until the victim confirms the notification by entering the correct PIN (Personal Identification Number) code.
