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

Caliber Foundation Conversation

On Tuesday, September 26, 2017, Sheriff Benny N. Napoleon joined Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy and Wayne County Register of Deeds Bernard J. Youngblood for a press conference to announce charges in a new deed fraud case.

"One of the things that I always tell people is that if a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is." said Sheriff Napoleon.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy announced during the press conference that charges were issued against four people accused in a Detroit deed fraud scheme that affected 23 people.

Prosector Worthy said the alleged scam occurred between January 2016 and March 2017. The Wayne County Register of Deeds Bernard J. Youngblood advised property owners to sign up for an account on to keep track of transactions on their property. He also suggested property buyers to seek the assistance of a Realtor when buying a home or land.




Whether they’re ready or not, Wayne County students are headed back to the classroom. And the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office wants them to make it there in one piece.

Of the 301 school-age children killed from 2006 to 2015 in school-transportation-related crashes in the U.S., 102 were pedestrians and eight were pedal cyclists, according to the most recent available data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

With more than five hundred public schools in the county, drivers and pedestrians alike need to put their phones away and pay attention to their surroundings, Sheriff Benny N. Napoleon said.

Deputies will be monitoring school zones, but here are some additional tips from the Sheriff’s Office for a safe trip back to school:

If you drive your children to school

Be sure to use the appropriate parent drop-off/pick-up area. Once at the school, please follow the instructions of the school’s staff.

Drive defensively. Always anticipate the possibility that a small child may dart in front of your vehicle. Be prepared to stop at all times.

Slow down and watch out for school zones and children walking or biking to school or congregating near bus stops. Also, be alert for student drivers.

Remember that buses will be making frequent stops. It’s not only dangerous to students, but it’s against the law to pass a school bus while it’s stopped on the roadway picking up or dropping off students.

When turning at an intersection, be sure to yield to pedestrians and cyclists.

If you’re a student riding the bus

Stay out of the street while waiting for the bus and allow the bus to come to a complete stop before approaching the bus from the curb.

Make sure you remain in clear view of the bus driver. Never walk behind the bus.

Look both ways before getting on the bus and after getting off.

After getting off the bus, look both ways and then move immediately onto the sidewalk and out of traffic.

If you’re a student walking or biking to school

For bike riders, wear a properly-fitted helmet at all times. Also, riders should use a bike that’s the right size for them and make sure that they don’t have any loose clothing, drawstrings or shoelaces.

Bike riders should ride on the right, in the same direction as traffic, and use appropriate hand signals. Bicyclists also should respect traffic lights and stop signs.

Walk on sidewalks where available and always cross at intersections.
