Message From Sheriff Washington

Greetings, and thank you for logging on to SheriffConnect to gain insight into the various departments, programs and personnel of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office. The new year kicked off with numerous initiatives—some new and others continuing in an effort to always improve our service to the community and the inmate population. We are working diligently to continue our great strides in mitigating and eliminating Covid 19 cases in our facilities. We recently installed 22 high tech air purifying devices that target and eliminate COVID-19 in the air in our jails, Road Patrol and Administration building. In January, we began vaccinating personnel (those who signed up to receive it) and to date more than 450 employees have received the first or second dose. Recruitment is also a top priority as we strive to fill as many of 200+ vacancies we have. Filling those slots swiftly will go a long way in reducing the mandatory overtime required to meet court-ordered requisites to staff and secure the jails and courts.

As a longtime executive on the front lines, I know first-hand how these statutory requirements are wreaking havoc on our employee morale. I am committed to improving operations in all areas so that our personnel can continue to implement the highest level of service in their respective commands. Finally, work on the new Wayne County Criminal Justice Center continues and once completed we’ll have state-of-the-art facilities that will enhance working conditions exponentially. The men and women of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office deserve that and so do you, the citizens. Let’s get to work!

THE LATEST NEWS FROM THE WCSO

Wayne County Sheriff’s Office Starts Vaccinations of Jail Inmates

Detroit, Michigan (April 9, 2021) – The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office begins vaccinating inmates today as part of an ongoing effort to avoid community spread of Covid-19 in WC jails. All inmates were offered an opportunity to be vaccinated and those who agreed are receiving the Johnson and Johnson vaccine (which requires only one dose). Today, health workers vaccinate inmates at Division 3 with a plan to vaccinate inmates at Jails 1 and 2 in the next few weeks.

Sheriff’s office executives immediately initiated safety protocols at the start of the pandemic in March 2020. In addition to daily temperature screenings, stringent sanitization practices and continuous distribution of PPE supplies, bi-weekly Covid-19 testing is mandatory for all Sheriff’s Office personnel. In January, jail officials began arranging on-site vaccinations of personnel and in February, installed 22 purifying units in the jails that attack Covid-19 in the air.

WCSO SEEKING TO FILL 200 VACANCIES IMMEDIATELY

Wayne County (March 12, 2021) – Wayne County Sheriff Raphael Washington is looking for 200men and women to fill corrections officer vacancies at the three jails. The vacancies—resulting from retirements or other turnover—critically affect staffing levels in the facilities. In an effort to get folks hired fast, the Sheriff is spreading the word that we need those seeking employment to contact the agency so that their application may head to the top of the list

“While the staffing shortage we’re facing is not new, the need to hire qualified individuals couldn’t be more urgent,” says Sheriff Washington. “These career-focused jobs are available now with plenty of opportunities for overtime in this time of economic downturn.”

 

Taking On Covid

The WCSO is taking on COVID where it lurks, in the air! Fighting COVID in all facilities has been a mission of executive leadership since the pandemic began and Sheriff Raphael Washington has promised keeping personnel, the public and the inmate population safe is among his top priorities. At a recent press conference, the Sheriff and executive leadership announced the acquisition of nearly 24 state of the art machines that target and eliminate COVID and other pathogens in the air in our 3 jails, Road Patrol and Admin building. Our agency is THE FIRST correctional agency in the nation to implement this technology. Adding this ground-breaking technology is just another weapon in our fight against this deadly pandemic.
