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

Thanks to Sheriff Benny Napoleon, the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office Dive Team engaged in extensive training in the Straights of Mackinaw.  The three days of training involved diver participation in scenarios focused on deep diving, wreck diving, boat diving, underwater scene documentation, and the deployment of Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV) in underwater operations.

            The training exercises were specifically designed to concentrate on team building, cooperation and coordination amongst the divers as well as to reinforce specific operational necessities associated with pre-dive safety checks, proper diving etiquette, storage of dive gear, personal conduct, entry and exit procedures, dive signals, communications, use of lights, redundant air supplies, and diver emergency management.  The three days of training involved diver participation in scenarios focused on deep diving, wreck diving, boat diving, underwater scene documentation, and the deployment of Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV) in underwater operations.The diver emergency management component involved training in diver injury recognition and emergency oxygen provision.

            The team conducted dives on three different shipwrecks, all of which allowed for the divers to conduct hull penetrations.  The ships included the:

  1. Cedarville:   a 600 ft. steel freighter that sank in 1965. It’s the third largest shipwrecked freighter on the Great Lakes.
  2. Sandusky:   a 141 ft. wooden schooner that sank in 1871
  3. Barnum :     a 200 ft. wooden steamer that sank in 1894

All of the goals and objectives established for the training were met.  In addition, each of the participating divers achieved Diver’s Alert Network (DAN) Neurological Assessment and DANEmergency Oxygen Provider certification.

Dive Team Members:

Lt. Matthew Gloster, Sgt. Mike Wasil, Sgt. Mike Roehrig, Cpl. John Brownfiel, Cpl. Adam Trimble, Cpl. Mike Babe, Cpl. Paul Seals, Cpl. Sean White, Cpl. Tim Chumara, and Cpl. Mark Schmidt
