Can I be notified if an inmate is moved or released from prison?
Governor Pataki mandated that such a service to notify victims or their survivors be available to all New Yorkers around-the-clock. Besides being able to track inmate movements on the website at http://nysdocs.docs.state.ny.us:84/kinqw00, you may register for automatic telephone notification of inmate movement by registering with VINE - Victim Information and Notification Everyday - by calling toll-free 1-888-VINE-4NY. You need not be a crime victim to utilize this service.
