Information on Offenders

Victim Information & Notification Everyday (VINE)

The Idaho Department of Correction (IDOC) has instituted a crime victims notification service, known as the VINE program. VINE is a toll-free, 24-hour telephone hotline. 

Users can call anonymously for offender custody status updates and register for automatic notification. The Idaho Commission of Pardons & Parole is a partner in the VINE project so that VINE also offers parole and probation information including parole hearing, case expiration and parole eligibility dates.

Victims may call the IDOC’s VINE Line at 877-846-3443 (877-VINE-4-ID).

IDOC Offender Search

Information about the location and parole eligibility of offenders sentenced to the Idaho Department of Correction can be obtained via the IDOC website.
