***PRESS RELEASE***

We want to refresh the citizens of the following news report sent out several months ago.  These groups are calling area residents and we want to make sure you are informed.  Please do not give money to these organizations, as they DO NOT support your local deputies.

Many residents have received calls from either the American Deputy Sheriff's Association or the United States Deputy Sheriff's Association.  The Fayette County Sheriff's Office DOES NOT support either of these groups.  They tell you the deputies need bullet-proof vests.  Each deputy in Fayette County is provided with a bullet proof vest.  These tactics are used to solicit money from you.  Before you ever give money, please contact our office to check on the validity.

The Fayette County Sheriff's Office does support the Iowa State Sheriff's and Deputies Association.  The Iowa State Sheriff's and Deputies Association does not solicit by phone.  They only solicit by direct mail.  This mailing is done with the Sheriff's signature at the bottom of the letter.  We have many honorary members and don't want the public to be confused with this.

Sheriff Marty Fisher would like to announce that the Fayette County Sheriff's Office is now using the Iowa VINE, Victim Information & Notification Everyday.

 

The IowaVINE system is a service through which victims of crime can use the telephone or internet to search for information regarding the custody status of their offender and to register to receive telephone and email notification when the offender’s custody status changes.  The toll-free number for IowaVINE is 888-7-IAVINE or 888-742-8463.  This service is provided to assist victims of crime who have a right to know about their offender’s custody status. 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.

 

This system is fed information from the Fayette County Jail computer system to the national VINE network. This system will be used by the Fayette County Sheriff's Office Domestic and Sexual abuse Response Team (D.A.S.A.R.T) and other law enforcement agencies in the county. Currently agencies in DASART are West Union, Oelwein and Clermont police departments, however any agency in the county will be trained by the Sheriff’s Office and can have victims use VINE.  If you have any question on Iowa Vine and how the Fayette County Sheriff's Office will use it please call the Sheriff’s Office for details.  You can access the Iowa Vine by clicking the following link:  Iowa Vine
