WA SAVIN is the Washington Statewide Automated Victim Information and Notification Service that lets you track the custody status of offenders in jail or prison. You can call the toll-free number at 1-877-846-3492 or register online at www.vinelink.com (click here to be redirected to that site https://www.vinelink.com/vinelink/siteInfoAction.do?siteId=48626) and follow the instructions to access custody information.

You can also be notified when a protection order is served through this service.
