The Victim's Assistance Portal (VAP) is a customized and secure web site for victims of crime. The VAP is a compilation of source data from the criminal courts of the Rhode Island District and Superior Courts, the Department of Corrections, the Office of the Attorney General and Justice Assistance. The VAP provides crime victims with a comprehensive look at information as it relates to their own case – Information, such as an offender's arrest, relevant court proceedings, sentencing status, and restitution collection and distribution. In addition, the crime victim will be able to determine an offender's incarceration and release status.
