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!
