A simple online search will make it easier to find out someone's criminal past in Trumbull County.

The Trumbull County Sheriff's Office is launching a new searchable database on its website to find out who has been booked into the Trumbull County Jail.

By using the Inmate Record Search, you can look up anyone previously booked into the jail.

The database also offers current inmate information.

It's the first online tool of its kind in the state. 

"We've always been on the forefront of transparency," Sheriff Thomas Altiere said. "When somebody wants something, we get it to them as soon as possible." 

The department averages 50 to 100 record requests a week on past inmate information.
