WAYNE COUNTY JAIL DASHBOARD

The Jail Dashboard is an interactive tool that provides information from the Wayne County Jail’s management system. It is updated every day and provides summary information about the current inmate population including the demographic makeup of current jail inmates, the types of supervised facilities, how long inmates have stayed, their types of Bookings and Arrest Types, Housing availability, and counts of inmates released from County supervision. Wayne County Sheriff’s Office receives a lot of questions about the jail population. This tool was created in an effort to be transparent with the public about the characteristics of our supervised population and to answer some of the common questions we receive about our inmates.

The Wayne County Jail Dashboard is powered by generous grant support from the Hudson-Webber Foundation and the Detroit Wayne Integrated Health Network.

THE LATEST NEWS FROM THE WCSO

Message From Sheriff Raphael Washington

Greetings, and thank you for logging onto Sheriff Connect to gain insight into the various departments, programs, and personnel of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office.

As we approach cooler temperatures, the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office wants to remind everyone to remain vigilant heading into the holiday season. The Sheriff’s Office has seen phone scammers taking advantage of our most vulnerable citizens during the Covid-19 pandemic, and more and more victims are coming forward. The perpetrator, using names of real members of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office, tells the victim they missed jury duty or that they (or a loved one) have an outstanding warrant. They then ask for money, often, in the form of cryptocurrency, but have also asked for debit card numbers and have used Apple Pay. We’re working with multiple agencies to actively investigate these complaints and take down these perpetrators. Do not verify or give out personal information. Never give money over the phone to someone you don’t know, and never agree to meet anyone. If you believe you or a loved one may have been a victim of one of these scams, please call our dispatch at 313-224-0414.

You may have also seen our SCOUT team in recent media stories. Our SCOUT officers hit the local streets regularly! SCOUT stands for Sheriff’s Community Organized Urban Team. SCOUT officers coordinate with community leaders and neighborhood watch groups. They also speak with concerned volunteers and citizens about crimes that are occurring frequently. Are you sick of those speeders or abandoned vehicles on your street? Notice someone suspicious? I believe that community policing in our neighborhoods is vital to public safety. Having an organized team allows us to collaborate on changes that will positively impact our future. Officers cannot be everywhere at once, so we rely on a mutually beneficial interaction with our residents and business owners to keep us informed of potential or ongoing problems. Let’s solve these problems before they become bigger issues. We are so much #StrongerTogether!

And don’t forget – we are hiring! The WCSO must fill more than 100 positions ASAP, and we encourage you to reach out to anyone you know who needs work, is seeking to make a job change, or just wants to make a positive impact on the community as a leader in law enforcement. CLICK HERE for details on the process and to download application materials. I promise you; it will be the most rewarding assignment you’ve ever had!
