VINE (Victim Information and Notification Everyday)

Victim Information and Notification Everyday (VINE) is a free and anonymous telephone service that provides victims of crime both information and notification. VINE monitors the custody status of offenders in the Riverside County Jail and receives updated information every 15 minutes.

The Toll Free Number for California VINE is 1.877.411.5588. Anyone can call the California State VINE line to determine an inmate's custody status. To search for offender information, callers will need one of the following items:

  • Offender name or alias
  • Secondary search option (if there is more than one offender with the same name), such as:
    • Arrest date
    • Date of birth
    • Middle initial
    • Offender identification number

VINE will let callers know about the offender's current custody status, the location of the inmate, and their offender number.

How to Call an Inmate

Inmates at the Riverside County Jail cannot receive incoming phone calls. However, they have access to phones and can make outgoing collect calls from the inmate housing area. 

California law has established the right of an arrested person to make at least three free local telephone calls upon being booked: one call to an attorney, one to a bail bond agent, and one to a relative or other personal contact. Phone calls are recorded and may be monitored at any time.

How to Send Money

Inmate deposits can be added to a resident’s account via the internet at AccessCorrections.com, by telephone, or via lobby kiosk at any one of the Riverside correctional facilities. 

To make an inmate deposit via the internet, customers must register online. An inmate deposit cannot be completed unless a profile has been established and the Terms and Conditions have been accepted.

Cash transactions for inmate deposits are only accepted at Access Secure Deposits lobby kiosk locations. Kiosks will not accept coins or $1 bills. Kiosks will not make change for large bills.
