Oregon's Victim Information and Notification Everyday System experienced a widespread glitch last night that resulted in many erroneous notifications to victims. Friday evening, Oregon Department of Corrects found that their normal system maintenance led to the notifications.
The department is currently notifying the public about the errors. Victims who may have received the false notifications can check on the status of inmates in custody by using the Oregon Offender Search.
The contractor the department works with, Appriss, is fixing the repair, and falsely notified victims should have been made aware of the error last night.
The VINE system is a program monitoring offenders held across Oregon.
