New York Sheriffs' Victim Hotline

In an effort to provide peace of mind to victims of violent crimes and their families, the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office has joined with Sheriffs across the State of New York to implement the New York Sheriffs' VICTIM HOTLINE. The VICTIM HOTLINE provides updates and alerts on offenders’ custody status within the criminal justice system.

1-888-VINE-NY (1-888-846-3469)
Statewide Victim Assistance & Notification 24- Hours A Day

Many victims live in fear the criminal offender who victimized them may someday return to do so again. For these victims, and their family and friends, it is important to know if the offender is incarcerated in a correctional facility and if or when they are released from custody.

Now with just one toll-free call, a citizen can immediately learn the custody status of any offender housed in any of New York’s county jails or other County correctional facilities.
