MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office along with the Tennessee Sheriff’s Association launched a county-wide campaign to highlight a new program and its spread throughout the state.

SAVIN or Statewide Automated Victim Information and Notification system allows Tennesseans to register for notifications on the status of any county inmate currently held in county jails across Tennessee.

The duo gave an update on the campaign during a press conference Monday morning.

“It’s very important for victims to know the status of offenders who are incarcerated across the state,” said Shelby County Sheriff Floyd Bonner.

District Attorney Amy Weirich says victims deserve to know the status of those who have hurt them.

All 95 counties are participating in the campaign.

If you are a victim of a crime and would like to receive notifications on the status of your perpetrator, call 888-868-4631 or visit vinelink.com to register.
