VINE is an automated telephone and Internet service that helps victims of crime obtain immediate and updated information about the custody status of an offender. It is a free service available 24-hours a day, everyday. Any person is able to register and receive information with VINE.
This useful service is an additional notification program, however it is highly recommended for victims to not limit your protection and information pla to just one service but to also stay informed with the Victim Notification Program. You do not have to be a victim to become registered or receive information from VINE. If you are a victim, make sure you register with our notification program in order to receive additional notifications and the opportunity to provide input and/or appear before the Board.
PLEASE RETAIN THIS INFORMATION SHEET FOR YOUR RECORD
If the person who has committed a crime against you has been ordered to serve an extended amount of time in the state prison system, then you should know about Victim Notification. Very simply, Victim Notification is the act of asking for and receiving information on incarcerated offenders. Some victims and survivors do not want to receive information, and that is their right. If you do, however, there are certain steps you must take. Just telling the court or others that you desire information is not adequate. We are not provided with your name, that you desire to be notified, or how to contact you unless you tell us.
If you choose to be notified of certain status changes during an offender’s involvement in the criminal justice system, please see below.
Once this form is received at the address provided, it will then be distributed by the Victim Coordinator of the Pardon and Parole Board, to the Attorney General’s Office (in capital cases only) and the Victim Witness Coordinator in the county where the defendant was sentenced. Each agency listed is a separate state agency which performs different and distinct services to crime victims and survivors. All notifications are governed by state law and individual agency policy and procedure. Please feel free to contact each agency for specific questions on specific cases.
If at any time you wish to withdraw from the Notification process, you must contact the Pardon & Parole Board in writing to remove your name from the parole notification system and you must call OK VINE at 1-877-654-8463 to remove your name from their notification system.
It is your responsibility to notify the Pardon and Parole Board, in writing, of any change in address. You must keep your address, e-mail address and telephone numbers current in order to receive information. Send changes to:
Oklahoma Pardon & Parole Board
120 N. Robinson, Suite 900W
Oklahoma City, OK 73102-7436
