Lysbeth, the funny thing is...the RIDOC site USED to have an online inmate locator; I was able to check up on my ex-BIL last year! I don't know when they dropped it, but it was a speedy, detailed search engine. Bleah on RIDOC

Anyway, RI now uses the VINE phone system, just like MADOC...this is quoted on one of the RI site's pages:

"RI-VINE (Victim Information and Notification Everyday) is a free, anonymous, computer-assisted service that provides victims of crime two (2) important services: Information and Notification.

Information - For offender custody information, call 1-877-744-8463 and follow the prompts. Callers use basic information to search the RI-VINE database. RI-VINE will quickly provide the caller with offender information including status, location, and if a sentenced offender, anticipated release date.

Notification - Callers may choose to register for automated telephone notification when an offender has changed status. In some cases, letters may be sent.

For further information, please call the RI DOC Office of Victim Services at 401-462-5203."

Hope that makes your job a teeny bit easier, Lys....50 states is a monumental task, and I am very impressed by your dedication. You go, girl!

Sue

Thanks, Susan! I stayed up all night & didn't sleep 'cos I was bound and determined to get all 50 states done last night, LOL...

OK, so they HAD an online locator and now they don't? How backwards is that?! Argh...

RE the VINE system (or similar)... actually, I found that on more than a few DOC sites and decided for now to not include them (tho actually I did one or two) in the new updates 'cos of them being generally geared toward victim notification... one state in particular, not naming names, seemed awfully strict about the usage policies. BUT... I don't know, I may go back and add some of those to the listings. I'll have to think on that one for a bit. But we'll leave this one up here, the more info the better... so thanks mucho grande bunches!!!
