Your victim advocate will not receive notification when a defendant has made bond. Therefore, it is important that you register with the victim notification program called VINE (Victim Information and Notification Every Day). VINE can be accessed 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide the most current information regarding custody status changes and criminal case information. In Denver, VINE only applies to notifications regarding Denver city and county jail inmates.
To register, call 888-263-8463 or go online to https://www.vinelink.com/ , and follow the prompts. You must have the defendant’s first and last name in order to register. If you register online you will be given the option of being notified of custody changes by phone, email or text message. When you register you will be asked to input a 4 digit PIN. You must enter the PIN both to receive the information and to stop the notifications.
Post-Sentencing Victim Notifications
While the District Attorney’s Office automatically notifies victims through victim advocates of critical stages in the prosecution of a criminal case, other agencies require the victim to request or opt-in for notification after the defendant is sentenced.
If a defendant is in the custody or control of one of the following agencies and you wish to be notified please enroll with the agency directly.
Probation - Probation Enrollment Form
Notification may include: current location, transfers, escapes, death while in custody, changes in probation and probation hearings, parole hearings, and probation, incarceration and parole release dates.
Based on the sentence received by the defendant in your case, the District Attorney’s Office will inform you of the appropriate agency to contact for post-conviction information.
Please remember that YOU MUST ENROLL for these notifications.
