Media Release

The Hawaiʻi Police Department has added a link to its website that allows citizens to monitor the status of Hawaiʻi inmates in jail or prison.

The Statewide Automated Victim Information and Notification (SAVIN) system is powered by the nationwide Victim Information and Notification Everyday (VINE) system. It offers victims and concerned citizens free, anonymous and confidential access to timely information and notification on the custody and parole status of offenders under the jurisdiction of the State of Hawaiʻi Department of Public Safety.

This service does not apply to inmates in federal prison or suspects being held at a police cellblock before going through the court system.

Interested persons can look up an incarcerated offender’s status on line or sign up to receive phone, email or text messages when that offender’s status changes. This service is particularly valuable to crime victims who want advance notice when their offender will be released from prison or up for a parole hearing.

The link can be found on the Police Department’s website on the Related Links page. It can also be accessed by going to www.vinelink.com and then clicking on the Hawaiʻi portion of the map.
