'Who's in Jail?"

Posted:

LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) -- The new "Who's in Jail" Web site of the La Crosse Sheriff's Department gives the public access to a list of jail prisoners, and that's not all.

In addition to age and hometown, the listing for each inmate includes a mug shot, booking date, amount of bond and information on charges or other reasons the person is behind bars.

Sheriff Steve Helgeson said the site should satisfy the interest of the public in who is in jail and why.

The site is updated when inmates are booked into jail and when they're released.
