VINE is a free and anonymous telephone service designed to provide two important features to crime victims: information and notification. VINE is available to callers 24-hours a day, 365 days a year.
Please be advised that victims of violent crime whose offenders are currently sentenced to the custody of the New Mexico Corrections Department must register directly with the prosecuting District Attorney's office in order to receive written notification of New Mexico Adult Parole Board hearings and New Mexico Corrections Department inmate releases. Registration through VINE does not automatically register you to receive written victim notifications from the prosecuting District Attorney's office.
To learn more about victim registration requirements, please contact your local District Attorney’s Office. Click here link to New Mexico Administrative Office of the District Attorney(AODA).
Click here to learn more about their court notification program (NMSAVIN).
Since VINE contacts you when an inmate is released or when there is a custody status change, you may possibly receive notifications in the middle of the night. If you do not want to receive phone call notifications during late evening hours or after midnight, there are other registration options available through cell phone text messaging or registering for e-mail notifications.
The NMCD provides notifications of the custody status changes of inmates, to include inmate releases, out-to-court status, and escape. At this time, we do not provide notifications of inmate transfers between prison facilities. For more information about types of VINE notifications available, please contact the New Mexico Corrections Department Victim Services at 1-877-842-8464, Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. MST or via e-mail at email@example.com
