Victim Advocate Unit

The Victim Advocate Unit consists of six Victim Advocates, a Technician and a Supervisor. The Victim Advocate Unit’s focus is to ensure the rights of victims are honored. They provide information and support throughout the entire investigative and criminal justice process. Victim Advocates assess the needs of victims and provide support from the onset of victimization. They also maintain a current listing of community resources to include referrals for counseling, legal aid, emergency food and shelter, safe housing and support groups. Unit members are on call 24 hours a day.


Victim Notifications
The Pasco Sheriff’s Office participates in the Vine Network
Across the country, crime victims and other concerned citizens are using VINE for access to timely and reliable information about criminal cases and the custody status of offenders 24 hours a day — over the telephone, through the Internet, or by e-mail.

Victims can call to inquire about the current status of an offender and can register to be notified immediately in the event of an offender’s release, escape, transfer, or court appearance.

WEB ACCESS: Vinelink
TOLL FREE NUMBER: (877) 846-3435

  • VINE communicates with jail and prison booking systems in near real-time, transmitting updated information to the Appriss Data Network™.
  • Crime victims and the general public can access the information by calling a local toll-free number, or logging onto www.vinelink.com, any time of the day or night.
  • Victims can inquire whether an offender is held in jail as well as the facility’s location.
  • Users can register to be notified immediately of a change in the offender’s status, such as release, transfer, or escape.
  • When a notification is triggered, VINE automatically calls the number or numbers the victim has provided.
  • Calls continue for a designated period of time, or until the victim enters a four digit PIN.
