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

WCSO COVOID-19 Response

Efforts to Keep Our Inmates, Officers, and Essential Staff Safe

I am extremely thankful for all of the brave men and women working tirelessly within the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office, especially those in our jails. At the onset of this global pandemic, our Executive staff contacted the CDC, National Jail Association, National Institute of Corrections, National Sheriffs Association, Major County Sheriffs Association and Michigan Department of Corrections to determine the best practices to be applied during this critical time. Since then, we have taken every step feasible to ensure that employees are protected to the greatest extent possible. Every officer has been issued gloves, n95 masks, face shields, sanitizer wipes, hand sanitizer, Clorox and Lysol spray. Additionally, there are a select number of disposable hazmat suits available. Each of our jail divisions have been sanitized and we have restricted entry into the jails to inmates, employees and attorneys. All employees were offered testing over an eight (8) day period. Upon entry to the jails, everyone is required to have their temperature taken.  Surgical masks have been distributed to inmates.

Over the past two weeks, we have hosted a daily conference call with the leadership of Local 3317 and POAM to discuss any issues or concerns from their members. Every issue that has been brought to our attention has been resolved to mutual satisfaction.

We have had five inmates test positive for COVOID-19 and they are currently isolated in our medical unit. As your Sheriff, I will continue to work with our staff to ensure that we are taking every safety measure possible to keep our employees healthy. Again, thank you to every member of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office, both officers and civilians.
