VINE Offender Information

What is VINE?

VINE (Victim Information & Notification Everyday) is a free, anonymous, computer-based service that provides victims of crime two important services: information and notification.  

VINE will tell you if an offender is in the custody of the Minnesota Department of Corrections or a county jail (that is participating in the VINE program) and give you custody information.  VINE will also let you leave a phone number where you want to be called automatically when that offender is released or transferred.  

Obtaining Offender Information:
There are two ways to obtain VINE offender information.  Log on to the VINE Web site at or call 1-877-MN-4-VINE.  There are information leaflets available in the lobby at the McLeod County Sheriff's Office.
