DETROIT (WXYZ) — The only thing that could make a Monday feel more like a Monday is probably getting pulled over by law enforcement. But this time, there was a reason to smile during the traffic stop.

Wayne County Sheriff Ray Washington, deputies, and their community partners kicked off a day of spreading joy by giving drivers Kroger gift certificates, some valued at $250.


Wayne County Sheriff and Wayne County Prosecutor combined w/ RESA to get a much needed message out to Wayne County Students, Parents, Teachers and Administrators.

Wayne County Sheriff’s Office Staff, Wayne County Commissioner Alisha Bell, and members of Jack N’ Jill, in partnership with CNS Healthcare, distributed more than 1400 Turkeys and Sides.

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.

Sheriff Raphael Washington was honored to be a panelist at the Chief of Police Town Hall Meeting to discuss gun violence and its devastating impact on our community. Detroit Edison Public School Academy was packed and candid questions were asked. Sheriff Washington and the men and women of the WCSO hope to keep this conversation going. We hope to all remain actively involved in finding REAL solutions involving education, technology, awareness, enforcement, unity and truly walking the walk! To start, the WCSO will be distributing a flyer to parents and guardians in the county beginning at all Detroit elementary schools. Stay tuned! Thank you to Chief James White, our dedicated panelists and to everyone who came out. It was an uplifting and productive evening in Detroit.

The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office was thrilled to break ground on a $1.4M project that has been over 10 years in the making! This massive project could not have been possible without the assistance of Wayne County Executive Warren C. Evans and his team, the Wayne County Board of Commissioners, and the Department of Public Services. The revitalization efforts that will soon be underway at the WCSO’s Marine Division at Elizabeth Park in Trenton will provide a much safer environment for the officers and public. It will also allow for a quicker response for the marine unit! THANK YOU TO ALL INVOLVED!

The WCSO has the only marine base stationed directly on the river in the downriver area. This allows us to lend boat space to other agencies for joint operations and for safer and quicker deployment for employees. It also offers a safer environment for the general public.

This Project includes construction of park [...]

Sheriff Washington and Recruiter Mark Diaz had a great time at the Mexican Independence Day Celebration with the Mexican Consulate of Detroit at the Oakland University Golf Course! Thank you for allowing them to be a part of such a meaningful event — and WOW the food! Mark said later: “hopefully my tastebuds grow back!”


The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office would like to warn the public about an ongoing phone scam in the county that has already robbed people of thousands. We have dozens of victims already, and more continue to come forward.

It often begins with a simple phone call to the victim. The perpetrator, using names of real members of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office, tells the victim they missed jury duty or that they (or a loved one) have an outstanding warrant. The phone number appears to be coming from the WCSO, but it is not. The scammers already have the victim’s personal information and then ask to either verify it or get more information. They then ask for money, often, in the form of cryptocurrency, but have also asked for debit card numbers and have used Apple Pay. We have some victims who have lost thousands of dollars and believe there may be countless others who [...]
