Don’t worry if you don’t know what VINE (Victim Information and Notification Everyday) is, or have never heard of an Offender Management System; most people have never heard these terms before.
Basically, VINE is a free service that allows victims of crime and concerned citizens to receive real-time information on the custody status of offenders in prison. People may also register to be notified when an offender is transferred, released or escapes.
Unfortunately, to date VINE has only been able to monitor about 75% of the incarcerated offenders in America. This has been because many smaller facilities lacked the technical infrastructure or resources required for the VINE system to communicate with them.
This is where the partnership between Appriss Inc. and Digital Solutions Inc. comes in. Digital Solutions provides a low-cost, web based and secure Offender Management System that even the smallest jails can implement, thus connecting them to the VINE system and affords the opportunity to provide a complete blanket of information coverage for victims of crime and communities.
