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

Hello and Happy New Year! It was an exciting journey through 2022 and I’m glad you were there with the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office through it all. We hit some significant milestones and fell just short on some others. Overall, we achieved the mission of WCSO! Our Deputy Sheriffs tagged vehicles,

From the Community Engagement standpoint, I could not be happier with our partnerships than to have handed out blankets to the homeless, to have held the Easter Egg Hunt with Grandmont Rosedale, our Annual Benny N. Napoleon Memorial Golf Classic, supporting youth & seniors, to have partnered with Goodfellows, as well as the Lava Grille in Northville for our “No Child without a Christmas” efforts. Our Turkey Giveaway with CNS Healthcare, our Santa on Patrol and the $3,000 in gift cards given away thanks to Kroger, along with the $55,000 in gift cards, serving more than 65 families in partnership with Meijer’s, were exceptional events that I look forward to each year!

We realize the importance of our jobs in the jails, on road patrol, our mounted & marine units, courts, K-9, and recruiting. We are constantly looking for men and women interested in joining our team to continue the fine work that we do.

To have completed nearly 500 Reserve Division assignments is just an unbelievable accomplishment and included our presence at the Gibraltar Fireworks, the Northville Parade, Inkster’s Summerfest, Plymouth’s “Art in the Park”, Taylor’s Cruise, and the Arab & Chaldean Fest at Hart Plaza in Detroit, to name a few. When we think of all that happened last year, we continue to applaud our Deputy Sheriffs and Reserves. Alongside other law enforcement agencies, to ensure their safety, protecting and serving residents in our 43 cities and townships in Wayne County, is no easy task.

I truly look forward to a more exciting 2023 for our staff, our deputies, and our residents of Wayne County!

Ready to join our Team! We are looking to fill more than 100 positions and encourage you to visit our website to learn how you or someone that you think would be a good candidate can learn more.
