The Victim Information and Notification Everyday System (VINE) is a free 24-hour telephone service that allows a crime victim to check on the status of an inmate in custody within the Bayfield County Jail and to register for automatic notification when an inmate is released from custody or transferred. VINE can also provide information on the inmate’s charges, bail, location in the jail, scheduled release date, and where and when an inmate was transferred. The VINE system is unable to supply information regarding if an inmate has Huber privileges or home detention on electronic monitoring.
Victims should not depend solely on the VINE service for protection. If a victim believes that he or she may be at risk, he or she should take precautions as if the inmate has already been released and is able to travel about freely. Please contact the VINE System at 888-944-8463 for any questions or concerns.
