Kansas developing system to track county inmates

KSAL StaffAugust 28, 2016

The state is implementing a system that will make it easier to track the location or release of inmates in county jails.

The Kansas Attorney General’s Office says the system is called Victim Information and Notification Everyday, or VINE. It is already operating in 19 counties and is expected to be in use in the other 86 counties in the next two years.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/2cjLXFu) the free and anonymous service use the telephone or electronic devices to provide updates about changes in the custody status of a county jail inmate.

Updates are available every day and in several languages. Before VINE, victims had no centralized source of information about offenders held in county jails.

Users also can access information about jail inmates housed in other participating states.
