Getting timely and complete information can help the ongoing fear and concerns for the safety of victims of crime.

Information about the location of an offender involved plays a large part in both the physical and mental well being of victims. The Omaha Police Department is participating in a statewide victim notification system that will let victims receive information about the inmate's status.

The system is called Victim Information and Notification Everyday (VINE). VINE provides all victims of crime and others, continuous access to vital inmate information over the telephone or by email notification. By calling a toll free number or going to the website a crime victim, or anyone, can determine current status of a person or register to be automatically notified of the release, transfer or escape of an inmate.

VINE will monitor the custody status of adult inmates in all county jails and state prisons in Nebraska. Updated information is available 24 hours a day. VINE is available in English and Spanish and supported by 24-hour operator assistance.

Anyone may call the Nebraska State VINE Hot line to determine the custody status of an inmate.

Callers:

  • should know the inmate's name or booking number

  • may call as often as they like

  • do not have to register when calling

  • can remain anonymous

  • have the option to register for automated telephone notification or email notification


If there is a change in an inmate's status in the criminal justice system, the caller will be notified by the automated telephone system or by email.
