The Douglas County Sheriff's Office has partnered with Kansas Vine to provide residents enhanced Inmate Custody Status notification alerts.
The Kansas VINE system is a service through which victims of crime can use the telephone or Internet to search for information regarding the custody status of their offender and to register to receive telephone and email notification when the offender’s custody status changes. The VINE toll-free number for the Kansas VINE system is (866) 574-8463. This service is provided to assist victims of crime who have a right to know about their offender's custody status.
Click KANSAS VINE or the logo below to begin. More information can be found here: KS VINE Fact Sheet (updated Sept 2017).
Please note that inmates housed at facilities other than Douglas County may appear multiple times in the VINE system. While you can request notification for each facility, it is not necessary.
The VINE "Offender Identification Number" can be found on the In Custody Report to the right of the inmate name, or as the CHRI number on the Booking Recap Report. You must register for a free account and be logged in to view these reports.
