Earlier this week, the District Attorney's office unveiled a series of informational kiosks throughout the county Justice and Administration Center. The computer-based system available at the kiosks provides a wide range of judicial information that can be navigated through a series of inquiries.

The county hopes to expand the kiosk program to police precincts and the sheriff's department in the near future.
