Probation Violation NotificationsSign up with the Department of Community Justice
VINE is an automated notification system. VINE will call, text, and/or email you if there is a change in custody status. For example, VINE can notify you if the person on probation is taken into custody or changes probation officers.
The Department of Community Justice can call you with information about any court hearings for probation violations. A common reason for a court hearing is when someone on probation violates a term of their supervision–such as by failing a drug test. If there is a hearing, you have the legal right to attend.
Frequently Asked Questions+ What are the terms of supervision?
There are a set of general conditions of supervision that apply in almost every case.
Sometimes there are special conditions of supervision that also apply (such as no-contact orders). To find out if a no-contact order applies in your case, you can call the probation/post-prison officer.

As a probation/post-prison officer, Jamiel can talk to you about offender information and answer questions including:
