The Palm Bay Police Department’s Victim Information and Notification Everyday (VINE) Program is a free, anonymous, 24-hour, computer-based telephone service for victims of crimes. The VINE Program is designed to provide easy access to offender information and to an offender’s custody status changes.
For inmate custody information, call 1-877-VINE-4-FL (1-877-846-3435) and follow the prompts. VINE informs a caller if an offender is still in custody, the offender’s bail amount and the name of the facility where the offender is being held. Live operator assistance is also available. Information can also be obtained by visiting the VINE web site.
Callers may also choose to register for automated notification via phone when an offender is arrested, released, transferred, escapes, or dies. To register, callers enter the phone number at which they wish to be reached and are then asked for a Personal Identification Number (PIN) for use during notification. The service will automatically call when one of the above events occurs.
The Palm Bay Police Department strongly encourages victims of crimes to NOT depend solely on VINE or any other single program to maintain their safety.
If you need assistance with this Program, please contact a Palm Bay Police Department Victim Advocate at (321) 953-8998.
