After locating the inmate in your case, choose option number two for registration.
Once you are registered , VINE will automatically call you when the inmate in your case has a change in custody status.
VINE will call you every 30 minutes for 24 hours or until you enter your 4-digit PIN code.
What is a PIN code?
Your 4-digit PIN code is used by the VINE service to confirm that you received the proper notification.

Entering your correct PIN is the only way to stop additional notification calls.
