IDSD Compliance Forms

Updated policy regarding investigator usage for Tier 1 and Tier 2 assignments
Within 48 hours of assignment of a Tier 1 or Tier 2 offense, assigned counsel should select an investigator to assist with preparing a defense unless assigned counsel chooses to opt-out.

If assigned counsel chooses to opt out, a detailed explanation is needed on the Request for Investigator Services/Opt-Out form.

This does not preclude attorneys assigned to Tiers 3 & 4 from investigator usage to prepare a defense.

Our forms are fillable PDFs. Many internet browsers such as Edge, Google Chrome, and Firefox can complete fillable forms without additional software. Apple products such as Mac computers, iPads and iPhones are not able to complete fillable forms in Safari and will require a PDF product which can provide form fill functions.

If you need a free product to complete our forms digitally, you can find free consumer versions of relevant products below. These are not enterprise-grade licenses nor are they underwritten by Wayne County or the Indigent Defense Services Department, and are in no way affiliated with Wayne County.

You assume all responsibility for use of these products including but not limited to complying with any applicable license terms and user agreements. Wayne County is unable to provide technical support.

These products may include optional offers that are installed alongside by default; these are not required, recommended, or endorsed by Wayne County or Indigent Defense IT and you are welcome to accept or refuse any optional add-ons at your discretion.

PAYEE Field on Requests for Payment

The "Payee" field in the investigator and expert requests for payment MUST match the name on file on the provider's W-9. Failure to match the Payee field to the W-9 name will result in payment delays.

NOTE: We recommend that all attorneys, investigators, and experts familiarize themselves with our Standard 3 Policy prior to requesting services as an attorney or applying to our program as an investigator/expert service vendor.
That policy can be found on our Policies & Procedures page and HERE

Request for Appeal Regarding Investigator/Expert Services

We have a courtesy list of Investigators and Experts who have worked with us on our Additional Resources page. We will be updating these courtesy resources periodically as new investigators and experts agree to our policy and fee schedules and/or apply to our roster independently.
