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.
