Maria Medrano, Grants Department
Ratify the execution of the SAVNS Maintenance Grant Contract No. 2111623 with the Office of the Attorney General in relation to automated victim notification services.
The purpose of the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) Statewide Automated Victim Notification Service (SAVNS) grant program is to maintain Texas counties in a statewide system that will provide relevant offender release information, notification of relevant court settings or events, promote public safety and support the rights of crime victims.
The Texas Statewide Automated Victim Notification System (SAVNS) is a free, anonymous telephone service that gives victims of crime information and notification about offender custody status and related court events. Texas SAVNS provides the following to crime victims and other concerned citizens over the telephone or via the internet at VINELink.
- 24-hour access to offender custody or case information
- The ability to verify an offender's custody status
- Automatic notification to registered users of a change in offender custody or case status
Texas SAVNS provides victims and concerned members of the community with up-to-date information about offenders' county jail custody and court status, 24/7/365 via a single statewide toll-free telephone number (1-877-TX4-VINE).
To accomplish the public purpose, the OAG will reimburse Nueces County for certain expenses incurred in the implementation and operation of the Texas program. The OAG’s reimbursement will cover the cost for Appriss to provide the services outlined in the SAVNS Maintenance Grant Contract between the OAG and Nueces County. The grant amount totals $26,053.91 with no required match. The service period began on September 1, 2020 and will terminate on August 31, 2021.
