Information for Law Enforcement

Law enforcement personnel are often among the first people victims of crime encounter. Providing them with information about VINE can be enormously helpful in their recovery or as part of their safety plan. VINE has developed materials specifically for law enforcement. To request free VA VINE materials for distribution in your jurisdiction, click here.

But VINE is not only for victims of crime. Anyone can sign up to keep track of an offender, either for personal reasons or as part of an investigation. Registrations and notifications are confidential, and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

A free online Virginia VINE course is now available, and provides information on how to use VINE both personally and professionally. The course is approximately 30-40 minutes in length, and features a component for law enforcement.

Free in-person VINE training is also available throughout the year, as well as on request. In-service credit may be available for completion of the two-hour course. VINE training is available to law enforcement personnel to provide information on how law enforcement can use VA VINE to enhance public safety in the community and aid in investigations. For more information, or to request training, please contact VA VINE program manager Amy Sheets at 804-644-0616 or [email protected].
