Sheriff Offering App For Crime Victims


POSTED July 26, 2013 2:34 p.m.

 

The Stanislaus Sheriff’s Department is offering a new app for iPhone and Android smart phone users that will notify crime victims of changes in the custody status of criminal offenders.


In partnership with Appriss, Victim Information and Notification Everyday (VINE) is a service offered by the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Office to crime victims who want to know when a criminal offender is released from jail.


The VINEmobile app is the “on-the-go” version of VINE, available as a Weblink on the Sheriff’s Website, that anyone access vital information about criminals arrested in the community. VINEmobile is free to crime victims and is anonymous for users.


“The Sheriffs in California are concerned about the safety of our victims and due to prison and jail overcrowding, many criminal offenders are released early,” said Sheriff Adam Christianson in a press release. “VINEmobile is another tool to help our victims while keeping communities safe and informed.”


The app also has links and access to victim’s services, resources and emergency numbers along with public safety announcements.
