LAVNS – Louisiana Automated Victim Notification System

In 1999 the Louisiana Legislature appropriated monies to provide an automated telephone system to keep crime victims informed of key events in an offender’s movement through the justice system (e.g., arrest, bail, court hearings, sentencing, incarceration and release). LAVNS is a service provided by the LCLE in cooperation with the Louisiana Sheriffs' Association (LSA), Louisiana District Attorneys' Association (LDAA), and the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections (DOC).

LAVNS will monitor the custody status of adult inmates in all parish jails and state prisons.  By calling our LAVNS LINE (866-LAVNS-4-U) or by accessing the listed websites, you may inquire about an offender's status and, optionally, register to be notified upon any change to that offender's custody status (i.e., release from jail, transfer to another facility, etc.).

LAVNS is FREE to victims who may call LAVNS ANOYMOUSLY and as often as they wish to register or to determine an inmate's current status.

Presently, LAVNS offers everyone access to a state inmate’s location by Internet www.vinelink.com and a 24-hour, toll-free telephone number: 866-528-6748.

Registering locally with LAVNS is NOT the same as registering with the Crime Victims Services Bureau. Presently one must register with the Department’s Crime Victims Services Bureau in order to receive notice of a state inmate’s projected release dates, actual release, and other actions noted above under the heading “Crime Victim Registration and Notification”.

LAVNS is FREE to victims who may call LAVNS ANOYMOUSLY and as often as they wish to register or to determine an inmate's current status.
