Congratulations to Sgt. Britton Foreman who is now a Certified Cyber Crime Examiner after successfully completing all of the prescribed requirements at the National White Collar Crimes Center.

Sgt. Foreman has applied best practices in digital forensic techniques to image, document, and report on forensically sound digital evidence. This certification helps him qualify as a skilled expert witness and distinguishes him professionally.

Throughout this rigorous training he has mastered the principles, concepts, and skills needed to fight Cyber Crime. We are lucky to have him on the Wayne County Sheriff’s team!

Today 29-year-old Deandre Williams of Detroit was sentenced to 50-75 years in prison for the murder of 50-year-old Wayne County Sheriff’s Corporal Bryant Searcy. Cpl. Searcy was brutally murdered doing the job he loved. The callous and calculated killing of this 18-year veteran was nothing short of monstrous. A wife lost her devoted partner and a daughter lost her loving father. Cpl. Searcy’s friends, colleagues and this community lost a loyal servant and kind spirit in him. The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office continues to hold Cpl. Searcy’s grieving family in our thoughts and in our prayers.
