General Crime Victim Information

Texas VINE

Victim Information and Notification Everyday

For victims of crime, there is strength in numbers

Toll Free 1-877-894-8463

What is Texas VINE?

  • Provides basic information on jailed offenders
  • Free service for crime victims and other concerned citizens
  • Notifies registered users of changes in offender jail status
  • Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in English or Spanish

Make Texas VINE part of your safety plan. The offender will not know you are registered with Texas VINE. However, do not depend only on Texas VINE, or any single program, for your protection.
