Victim Information & Notification Everyday

Be notified when someone is released from jail through the Victim Information and Notification Everyday (VINE) service.

For crime victims, there is strength in numbers. For offender information, call the Grant County Sheriff's Office VINE service at 877-846-3492 or visit the VINE website.

VINE Services

VINE will tell you if an offender is in the custody of the Grant County Sheriff's Office Jail and will give you other important custody information. VINE will allow you to leave a phone number where you want to be called, automatically when that offender is released, transferred, escapes, or any other change in custody status occurs.

Sign Up & Service Procedure

  1. Call 877-846-3492 from a touch-tone phone and follow the directions or visit the VINE website and select the Washington Statewide SAVIN link and refer the online FAQ section for help on information to complete the online registration process
  2. If the offender is in jail, you can leave your phone number to be called when their custody status changes
    • Enter the phone number where you want to be reached, including area code, followed by the pound (#) key
  3. When VINE asks, make up and enter a four-digit Personal Identification Number (PIN) that will be easy for you to remember, write it down for safekeeping, the VINE system will ask for the PIN when it calls to notify you of a change in custody
  4. When VINE calls, listen to the message, then enter your PIN when asked
    • Entering the PIN lets VINE know that you got the call, and will stop the service from calling you again

VINE Facts

  • The offender will not know you are registered with VINE
  • If you are not home, VINE will leave a message on an answering machine
    • If there is no answer, VINE will keep calling back until you enter your PIN code or until 24 hours have passed
  • Since VINE calls automatically when an offender's custody status changes you may get a call from VINE in the middle of the night
  • Do not leave a phone number with VINE that rings to a switchboard
  • Do not depend only on the VINE service, or any other single program, for your protection
    • Make VINE part of your safety plan
  • You can leave more than one phone number with VINE, just call the VINE service again
  • Do not depend solely on the VINE service for your protection
    • If you feel that you may be at risk, take precautions as if the offender has already been released
