Users can search for jail inmates by name, alphabetically or by entry or release date.</p><p>The system gives information about when the inmate was booked, when they may be released and their charges. It also includes a mugshot.</p><p>Jail officials say they implemented X-Jail because they were getting hundreds of phone calls each day from people seeking information about each inmate.</p> Mon, 09 Sep 2013 11:02:41 +0000 Joseph Lord 6749 at http://wfpl.org Now You Can Look Up Louisville Metro Corrections Inmates Online Should the Census Count Inmates Where They Live or Where They're Imprisoned? http://wfpl.org/post/should-census-count-inmates-where-they-live-or-where-theyre-imprisoned <p>A Kentucky state representative wants to change how prisoners are allocated when it comes to Census data. &nbsp;Should the Census Count Inmates Where They Live or Where They're Imprisoned?</p><p>State Rep.
