Vehicle Identification and Notification Service (VINS) is a service to law enforcement agencies,
cities & counties, tow & storage lot operators, and citizens that streamlines towing
operations and reporting thereby enabling collaboration and information sharing via a single secure
VINS provides a web-based central repository for all tow related information (Police-initiated,
Private Property Impounds, and Repossessions). The VINS repository allows all tow-related
constituents to have access to data based on their particular role and requirements.
Utilizing a web-based model (SaaS - Software as a Service), there is no software to install or
download and not hardware to install and implement. Access is through the internet via a web
browser, smartphone, or tablet.
