|Madison County Sheriff Allen Riley Named
Chairman of the New York State Victim
MCSO PRESS RELEASE
(Albany) The Executive Board of New York State Sheriffs' Institute recently appointed Madison County
Sheriff Allen Riley to serve as Chairman of The New York State Victim Advisory Board.
Sheriff Riley's first official duty as Chairman was to preside over the Ninth Annual New York Statewide
Conference on Victim Notification in Albany, NY on April 22, 2015. Over 100 professionals attended the
conference representing law enforcement, probation, victim advocate groups, and correction facilities from
around New York State.
Riley stated “I am honored to be appointed to this board and work with the fine representatives who work tirelessly
for victim rights and services every day in our State.” “Crime victims need and sometimes want resources and
assistance, as well as timely and accurate offender information to proactively ensure their personal safety and
that of their families. I applaud the efforts of this Board.”
“Victims have their basic human rights of fairness, dignity, and respect stripped away during a crime,” Sheriff Riley
explained. “And for many of them, programs already in place help restore these rights by keeping victims informed
and involved in their cases.” Riley continued by stating “these programs are one piece of a victim’s overall safety
plan, ensuring that they are informed of their offender’s status. It is essential that a victim works with both law
enforcement and the Victim Advocate in building a solid plan. Our message to all victims of crime is you are not
The first program, the New York Sheriffs Victim Hotline (www.VINELink.com), addresses the right for crime victims
to be notified when the offender who harmed them is released from jail or prison. The Sheriffs’ Victim Hotline gives
victims and, other concerned citizens, around-theclock access to the custody status of offenders in jail and
provides automated telephone or email notification to registered victims when an inmate is released. VINE was
created in 1994 following the murder of Mary Byron in Louisville, Kentucky. She and her parents had asked to be
notified when Mary’s ex-boyfriend was released from jail. They were never told that he was released, and
he murdered Mary on her 21st birthday as she was leaving her place of employment.
In 2014, almost 2.8 million crime victims searched the VINE Database, using either the toll free number (1-888-
VINE-4-NY), the VINEMobile app, the Sheriffs Mobile Patrol App (both available for IPhone and Android), or the
website (VineLink.com). Also in 2014, over 100,000 crime victims received notification of a change in their
offender’s status either by phone or email. It was anticipated that the addition of the text messaging option would
result in even more crime victims receiving timely notification of vital offender information, and so far, these are
the results being achieved. “I welcome any resource for crime victims, as my office continues to seek ways to
better serve the public safety needs of the citizens of Madison County,” said Riley.
The second, the SAVIN-NY Order of Protection Notification Program (www.SAVIN-NY.com), allows individuals who
have been granted Family Court orders of protection to register to receive alerts when those orders are served.
SAVINNY was created because the period of time immediately following the service of orders of protection can be
particularly dangerous for victims, as offenders can be more violent during a time of separation. SAVIN-NY allows
registered victims to receive notifications of service 24 hours a day, seven days a week, via text message, e-mail,
fax, automated phone call, web query or iAlertz, a free application for the iPhone or iPad.
The Sheriffs' Victim Advisory Board was created in the year 2000 to provide guidelines and direction to the New
York Sheriffs Victim Hotline Program (VINE).
