This is where VINELink will come in. VINELink is a great tool that will allow you to keep tabs on inmates in real time. You can have alerts on your mobile phone or your email of when an inmate is moved, saw in court, or released from the facility.

VINELink was made for victims, but many family members use VINELink to keep a close eye on their loved ones as they are going through the justice system.
