Does the VINE Program monitor all inmates?
VINE only monitors inmates who are in the custody of participating agencies. There may be delays from the time of arrest before an inmate is officially recorded in the institution. If VINE cannot confirm that the inmate is in custody, callers should assume the inmate has been released. An inmate may be released on bail or released on his/her recognizance during arraignment. These individuals may not be considered in custody.

VINE may not monitor inmates being held at a police precinct or other police facilities.
