Notice To Victims, Witnesses, and Others with Wayne County Prosecutor's Office Business

Most of the phones at the Prosecutor's office are not working due to an outage that is affecting many businesses and other County offices downtown. The phone company is working to restore service but there is no timeframe for full restoration of services.

To get in contact with an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney or staff member, please do the following:

  • Email the individual

OR

  • Call the direct line of that person like usual,
  • You will be directed to voicemail,
  • All WCPO staff is checking voicemail at least daily,
  • You will receive a call back from the WCPO staff person, but please remember that it will likely not be from their number.

You may also call the main WCPO switchboard at (313) 224-5777. The switchboard will be able to route you to the APA's voicemail and may be able to reach someone in the unit of the APA/staff member for which you are calling.

Welcome to the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office. At the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office, we are committed to achieving justice for our cities most vulnerable residents. We will work tirelessly to hold offenders accountable, protect victims and we innovate to break the cycle of violence.

Our website will provide you with valuable information about our office programs and resources as well as your rights should you have the misfortune to be the victim of a crime. We regularly update press releases and other information on the web site so check for changes.

The Wayne County Prosecutor is the lawyer for the people, an elected official who is elected every four years. The Wayne County Prosecutor's Office prosecutes felony cases throughout Wayne County. My staff of over 180 assistant prosecuting attorneys, 24 investigators and 70 clerical and non lawyers support staff prosecute over 52% of all felony cases in Michigan. Forbes Magazine recently named Detroit as the most violent city in America. Our office is one of the 10th largest by case load in America and yet our staff is miniscule compared to offices like Los Angeles who enjoy a staff of over 2,200 or even Philadelphia who employ over 600 people. I am proud of our record and the miracles that we accomplish everyday.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office is to pursue justice, to safeguard the community by demanding accountability for those who commit crimes and to enhance the quality of life by changing the culture of violence.
