Victim Notification

VINE System
The Minnesota Victim Information Notification Everyday (VINE) system is a service through which victims of crime can use the telephone or internet to search for information regarding the custody status of an offender. Victims can register to receive telephone and e-mail notification when the offender’s custody status changes. This service is provided to assist victims of crime who have a right to know about an offender’s custody status. Visit the VINE website, or call the toll-free number for Minnesota at 877-MN4-VINE (877-664-8463).

Minnesota Choice is a web-based source of notification and information on offenders sentenced to a Minnesota Department of Corrections facility (prison).  To register for notification about an offender in a Minnesota State Correctional facility, or to learn more about MN CHOICE, visit
