THE LATEST NEWS FROM THE WCSO
Message From Sheriff Washington
Greetings, and thank you for logging on to Sheriff Connect to gain insight into the various departments, programs, and personnel of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office.
As we kick off 2022, and the Covid-19 pandemic and frigid temperatures continue, the Sheriff’s Office is always busy assisting other jurisdictions in addressing issues that are seriously hampering quality of life in our neighborhoods. From holding blanket and canned food drives to engaging with our youth and seniors, we are always trying to do what we can to help those in need in our community. We are much #StrongerTogether, and we know sometimes it is difficult to ask for a helping hand. Please know we are always here for you!
You may have seen in recent media stories that our SCOUT team is hitting 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. I believe that community policing in our neighborhoods is vital to public safety. 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. The problems we face in our community can be addressed effectively if we #StandTogether. That is the epitome of SCOUT. Having an organized team allows us to collaborate on changes that will positively impact our future.
Finally, we are hiring! The WCSO must fill about 200 positions ASAP, and we encourage you to reach out to anyone you know who needs work, seeking to make a job change, or just wants to make a positive impact on the community as a leader in law enforcement.
