“To Serve our Communities with Integrity and Respect; While Upholding Justice and Ensuring the Safety of All Citizens."


The Minnesota VINE Victim Assistance Program  is a service through which victims of crime can use the telephone or Internet to search for information regarding the custody status of their offender and to register to receive telephone and e-mail notification when the offender’s custody status changes.

The VINE toll-free number for the Minnesota VINE system is 877-MN4-VINE or 877-664-8463. This service is provided to assist Victims of Crime who have a right to know about their offender's custody status.
