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 LATEST NEWS FROM THE WCSO
Message From Sheriff Raphael Washington
There is a lot in store at the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office. In the second half of 2023, we will continue recruiting citizens to help us protect county parks, provide services at our courts, and manage our jails.
Our Marine Division has kicked into full gear with the boating season underway, along with our Mounted Police, Road Patrol, and other units, which help keep residents safe throughout the County.
I continue to be concerned about gun safety and the senseless violence we see on our streets. To address these issues and In support of the Detroit Police Department, our S.C.O.U.T. program is activated and having a significant impact. The S.C.O.U.T program stands for Sheriff’s Community Organized Urban Team and is designed to reduce traffic concerns, prostitution, abandoned vehicles, and narcotic sales in addition to removing intimidating influences from in front of stores, gas stations, and local businesses. I couldn’t be more excited about the great work done by our deputies and reserve officers, as residents are noticing the difference.
If that news isn’t exciting enough, work on the brand-new Criminal Justice Complex is nearing completion, and we expect to move in later this year! This complex will house several county agencies and provide services to Wayne County residents. We’ll be able to get more done with greater efficiency.
Over the next couple of months, the warmer weather will allow us to participate in and support several community events & festivals within the 43 cities and townships throughout our County. I hope you will continue to follow us throughout the year as we protect and serve Wayne County!
