ROCKFORD — Population at the Winnebago County Justice Center dipped to a four-year low earlier this month. After the first week of November, inmate numbers were at 765, a nearly 35 percent from an all-time high of 1,170 in May 2012. Local officials attributed the dip to effective teamwork among agencies.

“This dramatic drop in numbers would never have taken place without the cooperative and collaborative work ethic of all departments involved in the criminal justice system,” said County Board Chairman Scott Christiansen in a written statement.

He credited the drop to more staffing. County employees in court administration, court services, the Circuit Court and the sheriff, state’s attorney’s and public defender offices numbered 834 for October, compared to 781 for the same month in 2011.
