Victim Notification

One of the programs implemented during 1997 was the Victim Information Notification Everyday (VINE) System. This is a completely automated victim notification system that notifies registered victims of domestic violence, sexual battery, stalking, and other offenses as defined by law of the perpetrator’s release or transfer.

This is a life-saving program available to crime victims and their families, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Gwinnett County received an award from the National Domestic Violence Hotline in 1997, 1998 and 1999 for outstanding service to victims of domestic violence as a direct result of the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Department’s participation in the VINE system.

Victims of domestic violence and other crimes may call the toll-free VINE line at 1-800-467-4941 to register for inmate release, transfer or escape notification, or to obtain inmate information. You may also register on line by clicking the link:
