The WI Statewide 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 e-mail notification when the offenders custody status changes. The VINE toll-free number for the WI Statewide VINE system is 888-868-4631.
