Welcome to SheriffConnect

Thanks to a coordinated effort between the Wayne County Sheriff's Office, Wayne County Chief Executive Office, Wayne County Department of Technology and New World Systems (now Tyler Technologies New World Public Safety), we will soon implement new Jail Management System software.  JMS is designed to help facilitate jail operations and inmate management.  This new system will replace the current inmate management software that has been in place since 1999.  This project is the largest IT implementation in the County since we went live with the current system.  It offers interfaces and integrated technology that are impossible with our current system.  As the Sheriff's personnel becomes accustomed to the new software, this system will increase the efficiency of jail operations, reporting capabilities and reduce liability.  I know what you're thinking, how does this affect me? read more

By land, sea and air, that's where Sheriff Benny Napoleon and Detroit Police Chief James Craig say their joint effort to pool resources will have an even greater impact on public safety.  The law enforcement leaders held a press conference in December to announce about a dozen DPD officers were being deputized to work on WCS marine unit boats to expand DPD's jurisdiction in marine incidents and also add manpower to assist the WCSO Marine Unit which is feeling the effects of a department-wide personnel shortage.  Accordingly, WC deputies will have access to DPD helicopters for investigative and law enforcement purposes.  The partnership is the latest in a string of collaborations between the WCSO and DPD to increase public safety.

Sheriff Benny N. Napoleon recently honored dozens of officers and command staff for their exceptional achievement, heroism and general commitment to the law enforcement profession and the community they serve. The Salute to Service event was co-sponsored by Local 3317 and the WCDSA/POAM and held at Wayne County Community College District Downriver Campus in Taylor. In addition to naming Officers and Supervisors of the year for Courts, Operations and Jail Divisions I, II and III, honorees also received Sheriff's Citations, Commendations, Citations for Lifesaving and Valor and also Perfect Attendance. In fact, there were more than 50 individuals honored for perfect attendance. But no honor stood out so valiantly as the selfless dedication of Minister Almeta Bastisties who has volunteered her services as a Chaplain for 53 years to the jails! Not ony has she continued to travel to the jails several days a week by bus, she's done so while raising a family of five boys, four girls, an adopted boy and girl and 67 grandchildren. The event was attended by family, friends and various members of law enforcement, the judiciary and county commission, It was a perfect opportunity to highlight the true dedication of many of the agency's everyday heros. Congratulations to everyone who was recognized.
