Message From Sheriff Washington
As we near the first 100 days of my term as Sheriff, we must continue to be vigilant against the threat of Covid-19 in our facilities. Since the pandemic began we have maintained diligent efforts to sanitize our facilities, conduct daily temperature readings, distribute PPE supplies and conduct mandatory nasal swab testing. In fact, all personnel must undergo bi-weekly covid testing. In addition to these measures, we installed 22 state of the art air purifying units in our three jails, headquarters and Road Patrol Office (Westland). This cutting edge technology actually targets and eliminates Covid and other pollutants in the air.
The effort doesn’t end there. Since January, we have arranged vaccinations for more than 400 employees and we began vaccinating inmates in April. We will continue to survey that population to make sure all who want a vaccine receives one and will add that to our intake process so that the request is automatic. As we have seen, many of us may feel as if we are done with this pandemic, but the pandemic is showing it is not done with us. We are too close to getting this pandemic under control! Now is not the time to let our guards down. It is so very important that if you find you must conduct business with the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office in our facilities that you adhere to all safety protocols we ask you to follow so that one day we may be rid of this virus and get back to some sense of normal. We are committed to ensuring your interactions with us are the safest and most effective they can be.
