The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office, Ypsilanti Police Department and the Ypsilanti Community School District partnered this summer to run the 2016 Junior Police Academy.

The WCSO would like to commend Sgt. Mike Mahalick, Deputy Jim Roy and Deputy Thomas Couch for their exceptional police work in locating and saving the life of a missing 72 year old male with heart and seizure conditions.
On Wednesday, July 27, 2016, in cooperation with the U.S. Marshal’s Office, Washtenaw Metro-SWAT, and the Westland Police Department, the Sheriff’s Office conducted a search warrant resulting in the arrest of the suspect in the July 22nd, 2016 shooting in Superior Township.
In the less than five months since Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office deputies began carrying Naloxone, they have saved 11 lives. This number does not reflect the lives saved where Sheriff’s Office deputies were on the scene but HVA or EMT-trained firefighter personnel administered the Naloxone. This equates to more than two lives saved per month because deputies who were first on the scene carried Naloxone, were trained to use it and immediately administered it when encountering a suspected heroin overdose.
WCSO partnered with Michigan Works, Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Regional Chamber of Commerce and My Brother’s Keeper to assist Washtenaw County's Youth population in obtaining employment over the summer months.
The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office will be closed on Wednesday, November 11, 2015 in observance of Veterans Day. Normal business hours will resume on Thursday, November 12, 2015.
