Internet usage can be monitored and is impossible to erase completely.

Clear your browser history (external link) after visiting this website.

Computers store information about the websites you visit. That means bills you pay and purchases you make are tracked, and messages or emails can be retrieved. You should always consider that a computer might be monitored when you use it and be careful with what you send others or post.

Safe computers can be found at your local library, Internet cafe, shelter, workplace, or computer technology center; avoid using shared computers when researching things like travel plans, housing options, legal issues, and safety plans. Using safe browsing practices (like using a VPN) can help prevent abusive partners from tracking your Internet history.

VINE (Victim Information & Notification Everyday) is a service through which victims of crime can use their telephone or internet to search for information regarding their offender's custody status and register to receive telephone and email notification when their offender's custody status changes.

What will VINE do for me?

VINE will tell you if an inmate is in jail and will give you other important custody information. VINE will also let you leave a phone number where you want to be called automatically when that inmate is released, transferred or, escapes. The automated VINE system is available in a number of languages: English, Spanish, Amharic, Vietnamese, Russian, and Chinese.

For more information about VINE, refer to King County VINE Service.
