COVID-19 Message

The Wayne County Prosecutor's Office is committed to our constitutionally mandated functions. As a result, the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office (WCPO) will have personnel appear in court by remote video access whenever possible in keeping with the Directive of the Third Circuit Court.

Please see the Third Circuit Court Website regarding the resumption of trials in the Criminal Division.

Bond motions will be conducted by phone or by remote video. WCPO will have not have personnel in the 36th District Court Criminal Division out of an abundance of caution to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We will appear by remote video as much as possible while continuing to work with other District Courts' directives. All scheduled court dates will be limited exclusively to incarcerated defendants.These latest measures are being undertaken to protect the WCPO staff, the public, defense attorneys and members of law enforcement. We will not allow members of the public, attorneys or members of law enforcement into our offices until further notice. Members of the public who are complainants or witnesses in a case with an incarcerated defendant will be given instructions regarding court dates by the prosecutor handling their case. Members of the public with questions should call (313) 224-5777. Members of law enforcement will continue to submit all warrant requests electronically to limit contact while allowing our staff to perform our warrant functions. Attorneys will submit all pleadings electronically and have contact with WCPO staff via teleconferencing, email or telephone. These procedures are the most responsible way to proceed at this time.You can go to the Wayne County Sheriff's website to determine if an inmate is in custody. http://www.sheriffconnect.com/jails.html.

If you have a District Court case, please go to the court's website.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact the prosecutor or victim advocate for your case.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Jury Service

If you receive a summons to report to jury duty at the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice:
The jury summons directs you to call the Jury Services Office number the day before your scheduled service. The number is on the summons. The recorded number tells you not to appear.

Thank you for your willingness to serve.

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.
