Automated victim notification service gets an app

-A A +A


The National Victim Notification Network offers an automated victim notification service.

Residents can sign up online to be notified by email, text or phone call when a suspect or offender has been released from custody. The service has become available in a mobile app. 

The free app can be downloaded on the iPhone or Android. A link is available on the website www.vinelink.com.

Users can register by calling Kentucky’s toll free number 1-800-511-1670 or TTY (text telephone for hearing impaired) 1-866-847-1298.

Registrations for notification are secure and anonymous.

In 1996, Kentucky Department of Corrections implemented the Victim Information and Notification System, making Kentucky the first state in the nation to provide the service on a statewide basis.
