La Crosse Web site shows who's in the slammer

The La Crosse County sheriff now has a Web site that shows you who's in jail and who's wanted for warrants.

Those jailed in La Crosse will no longer be able to hide that fact.

La Crosse County Sheriff Steve Helgeson has started a Web site called "Who's in Jail." It lists the names of the inmates along with their mug shots, booking dates, the amounts of bonds and why they're behind bars.

Helgeson says the jail gets about 2,000 calls a week from people asking for that kind of information and he figures the Web site will cut down on those calls.

He says some people need to know this stuff while others are just curious.

Either way, the sheriff says folks have a right to know who's in jail. The site also has a listing of active warrants.

Helgeson is looking for the public's help in finding those fugitives. You can find all this online at
