VINE (Victim Information and Notification Everyday) is a solution, developed by Appriss, that provides victims of crime with access to timely and reliable offender custody information. The VINE service is free to the public and is now available to look up incarcerated individuals in Cowley County.

Offering peace of mind, the VINE service lets victims call a toll-free number (866-574-8463), visit, or use the VINEmobile™ app to anonymously check on an offender’s custody status. Victims can also register to receive automated notifications about changes in that status via their choice of format: phone, email, or text. TTY (hearing impaired) service is also available. 

VINE is currently available in more than 2,900 communities across 48 states, including Kansas. 

24/7/365 support from the Appriss CustomerFirst Center is available for callers who need help locating an offender, registering for notifications, or accessing victim services in their area. VINE notifications are available in more than 15 languages, with more than 200 languages available via live operator support.

The VINE service provides offender custody status information to over 20 million citizens annually. In 2015, VINE users conducted over 46 million offender searches and delivered over 40 million notifications nationwide.
