Victims Overcoming Traumatic Events (VOTE)
Sutter County Sheriff's Office continues to assist victims through traumatic events
in their lives by offering various programs and solutions to their problems. The VOTE program
is comprised of Deputies from the Sutter County Sheriff's Office, including the Live Oak
Substation. Statistics have shown that domestic violence and other traumatic events involve
a cycle of abuse and the offenses are often repeated until the cycle is broken.
Deputies from the VOTE program work together with other agencies such as the Yuba City Police
Department, Sutter County Probation Department and non-profit agencies to combat the cycle of
abuse. Deputies also conduct probation visits, assistance to the victims, and actively seeking
those with arrest warrants.
The Sutter County Sheriff's Office and Jail also offer the VINE (Victim Information and
Notification Everyday) Program. This service is a free and anonymous telephone service that
provides victims of crimes two important features: information and notification. This service
can be used by victims of crime, domestic violence, family members interested in the custody
status of their family, and news media that are concerned as to the custody status of an inmate.
Callers will need a touch-tone telephone to use the service.
Crime victims and the general public register directly with VINE by calling 1-877-315-VINE or
by registering online at www.vinelink.com
The caller will be notified when the following occur:
- Release from custody for any reason
- Return to custody after escape
- Unsupervised custody
- Transfer to another facility
- Advance notification of release
Calls will be made every 30 minutes for 24 hours or until the correct PIN is entered to confirm
and stop the calls.
