VICTIM INFORMATION & NOTIFICATION SYSTEM
SAVIN also known as VINELink is the Washington Statewide Victim Information and Notification Service that will tell you if an offender is in custody and will give you other important custody information. This service will let you leave a phone number where you want to be called automatically when that offender is released, transferred, escapes, or dies. Anyone can sign up to be notified via e-mail or phone.
To sign up, go to https://www.vinelink.com/vinelink/siteInfoAction.do?siteId=48626
The Washington State Department of Corrections (DOC) is also now part of this notification system!
