Keeping communities safer and better informed through victim notification and criminal data access

We Understand How Challenging it is to Keep Your Community Safe

Communities today face more challenges than ever related to keeping victims of crimes safer and better informed. Victims and their families may live in constant fear of being re-victimized and may not understand their rights to be notified about offender status.

With limited community resources, it’s challenging for your community to connect victims with the right support services. Your community residents may not know how to navigate the criminal justice system, so they may remain uninformed and at risk.

Overall, your community may lack the resources in staffing, data access, and communication tools that are essential for updating residents about criminal activity that can help them be safer.

VINE is so critical to the victim’s well-being. I know from personal experience that VINE gave me such peace of mind and allowed me to concentrate on other areas of my life that were so critical. It was reassuring to know that this service was available to keep me informed. THANK YOU for VINE!!!
