A new website launched by the Scott County Sheriff's Office has people turning themselves in for outstanding warrants.
And with just a click, you can find out if someone you know is listed, and why police want your help.
The Scott County Clerk's Office tells CBS 4 before they opened their doors Wednesday morning, a line of people were waiting for them.
"Extra people were here in the hallways. 10 people turned themselves in on warrants due to the new website," said Linda Bowman, Judicial Clerk Supervisor.
People turning themselves in voluntarily.
"They don't want people to know they have a warrant for their arrest."
Before, police notified offenders by mailing out letters.
And in just a short time, police say this online approach seems to be working.
"They looked at the list and happen to see that there was a name, that belongs to somebody across the street from them. We than went out and picked that person up on a warrant, so that was just on the very 1st day," said Chief Deputy Mike Brown.
More than 1,300 names and pictures are listed, next to a description of the charge, in plain sight under the sheriff's office page.
You can scroll through this list, and see the warrants still out there are in green. One's with today's date on it, some showing in gray now, because that person took care of a warrant.
Chief Judge Marlita Greve said some of the warrants date back years.
"Some people, if can be a failure to appear warrant, they may have forgotten they had a ticket or may have forgotten they had something, so this is a way to get them in here and taken care of."
And now that the public has this at their fingertips, police said it could give offenders motivation to stop looking over their shoulders.
"If we get that information to the public and their recognizing these people, and seeing their names on the list, they may pick up the phone and give us a call, and we might be able to get through some of these cases faster," said Brown.
