WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Trumbull County Sheriff Thomas Altiere said he is shocked by how many people are using the newest feature on the department’s website.
Altiere said that since it was announced Monday, about 80,000 clicks have used the website to search for current and past inmates at the jail on High Street. Altiere said he was expecting a few hundred, but nowhere near as many as this.
“I would have been happy to get 400 or 500 and you know, I thought, boy, a lot of people are checking their stuff. But almost 80,000 is phenomenal,” Altiere said.
Altiere said seeing the numbers really validates the move to have things accessible on the Internet. Now he can’t wait to get police reports on the website too.
