    I know this has been popular in the last few years and it is all public information. How do these people get the information? Like a script to pull from the jail intake website?

    Someone should be able to build you a bot here, as long as you can find a site that regularly updates this info then your halfway there.

    I have the sites that display the information. All I need is a way to pull it with a script.

    Just steal the RSS feed from a site that does this already and hook up a WP auto poster

    Any decent web programmer should be able to write a script using cURL to pull the data.

    I use it on a few of my sites, they have an rss feed for locations. I actually had someone email me from my site asking me to remove their listing. I've been thinking of doing what other sites do, offer to remove the listing for x amount of $.
