ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- By the end of the month we'll be able to search for inmates online. The Winnebago County Sheriff is getting ready to roll out a brand new database and 23 News got a sneak peak.

We first told you about the site last month. It'll be updated in real time and will feature information on every inmate. Once someone is booked into jail a mugshot will be posted on the site. Additionally, the site will also contain bail information and what the person is charged with.

You can even sign up to get an email when someone is released from jail. The website will be available to the public for free in the next couple of weeks.
