Open Positions

Considering a career in public service? A complex public safety organization, the Sheriff's Office provides a wide array of justice and human services supported by full-time career paths in corrections, law enforcement, public safety communications, emergency management and selected part-time and seasonal opportunities.

Public Safety

As with many criminal justice agencies, our fundamental goal is to keep our neighborhoods safe. However, our approach varies from many similarly situated organizations. In alignment with the Sheriff's Office mission of creating public safety, providing quality service and building strong and sustainable communities, we believe in a comprehensive approach to promoting public safety that includes:

  • Intelligent, information-driven policing built upon proactive, community-based relationships and partnerships.
  • The safe, productive and appropriate management of offenders in our jail and their eventual re-integration into our communities.

"The Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office is committed to being the premier law enforcement agency in the State."
