|Subject:||New state system to take over crime victim notifications starting October 7|
Crime victims in Nebraska who signed up to get notification by email, phone call or text through the VINE service when their perpetrators are released got notifications this week that the state no long will be participating in the program.
Those signed up to get notifications through VINE won’t have to reregister with the new notification system, the notifications will just come from a different place.
The Nebraska Victims of Crime Alert Portal (NEVCAP) is the result of two years of planning and one year of development. The Commission leveraged funding from the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to build the new system.
By bringing the victim notification system in-house, the Commission virtually eliminated maintenance costs. The only change for jails and prisons is a new administration site for NEVCAP system management. Further, having direct control of the system allows the Commission to work more closely with its data partners and be more responsive to opportunities to foster innovation in victim- and service-focused content enhancements. One enhancement in the new system is access to victim services resources, a listing the Commission will continually update.
The NEVCAP Site nevcap.nebraska.gov will be live October 7th, 2021.
NEVCAP provides English and Spanish support for subscriptions and alerts (via both text and email) on offenders housed in Nebraska. The system also provides access to victim services resources.
