Office of the Sheriff
The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office will be closing at 12 noon on Friday, April 3rd, 2015 in observance of Good Friday. Normal business hours will resume on Monday, April 6th, 2015.
It is with great sorrow and deep sadness that the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office informs you of the death of WCSO Corrections Officer Chad Hilborn. Chad died this morning shortly after 7:30 a.m. as the result of a multi-car crash, which occurred near the corner of Michigan Avenue and Arkona Road in Bridgewater Township.
The Sheriff’s Office recently identified two (2) new police service dog (PSD) handlers who have been spending time building strong bonds and a solid training foundation with their new canine partners. The bond between the Police Service Dog Units (PSDU) and handlers from surrounding agencies is also very strong. This was made clear when our PSDU was contacted by Tracy Spader, Founder and President of the “K9 Defender Fund, Inc” www.k9defenderfund.org. Ms. Spader was made aware of our two (2) new handlers and canine recruits by the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office Canine Unit.
