SAVINPO WEBINAR SAVINPO, also known as VPO, is the Protective Order service notification program. The system provides information on all types of protective orders. Also gives a 90 day notice that the order is about to expire. What’s in a name ?

REMEMBER: SAVIN/VINE provides information about change in custody status including release, transfer, move to work release or electronic home monitoring.

PROTECTIVE ORDER PROCESS IN WASHINGTON STATE 1.Petitioner gets order from the court. 2.Court sends copy to law enforcement to enter into the WSP database (within 3 days) 3.Protective order is served. 4.Service information is entered in WSP database (not in real time) 5.Service notification will go out within an hour of entry. Although the two systems work the same way, the primary difference is the length of time from the serving of the protective order to notification. This can be anywhere from one hour to three days. Work with your local law enforcement agencies to get a sense of how long it takes to enter the service information into the WSP database.
