Request an Investigator or Expert
To request an Investigator or Expert, you are encouraged to identify a service provider and determine a general scope of services and anticipated hours necessary for the work to be completed with said provider. Investigators MUST be on our pre-existing list prior to approval as we must verify their licensure and they must submit for security clearance for entry to Wayne County jails. Prospective investigators can apply HERE.
As a courtesy resource, we have lists of providers which have previously been requested or used in Wayne County.
- Investigators (last updated Feb. 2023)
- Experts (last updated March 2023)
Once you have the scope of your request, add that information on the relevant request for services form with the specific case details and submit it to Inv.Exp.Requests@waynecounty.com.
In the event your request for an investigator or expert is denied and you believe the denial warrants an appeal, you can complete a Request for Appeal Regarding Investigator/Expert Services and submit it to IDSDWayne@waynecounty.com to the attention of the Assigned Counsel Administrator within three (3) business days of denial.
