Officials have a new warning for local crime victims.
Attorney General Scott Pruitt says the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board’s Victim Notification System has been “corrupted.”
Pruitt said the contact information used to provide case notifications for victims has been lost.
However, officials said no confidential information was comprised or stolen.
If you still want to receive notifications from the parole board about things like board hearings and offender protest deadlines, you need to re-register with the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board for the notification system.
Contact the board by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (405) 602-5863.
Protest forms are available at www.ppb.ok.gov under the “Victim” tab.
Sign up for the free Victim Information and Notification Everyday (VINE) system at www.vinelink.com or by calling toll-free (877) OK4-VINE.
Android: To sign up for notifications through the VINEmobile app Android users can search Google Play with the search term “VINEMobile.”
Apple: For Apple devices, users can search in the Apple App Store, using the search term “VINEMobile” under “iPhone Apps.”
According to Oklahoma VINE:
The Oklahoma VINE system is a service through which victims of crime can use the telephone or Internet to search for information regarding the custody status of their offender and to register to receive telephone and e-mail notification when the offender’s custody status changes.
The VINE toll-free number for the Oklahoma VINE system is 877-654-8463.
This service is provided to assist Victims of Crime who have a right to know about their offender’s custody status.
