Color Logo Charter Township of Ypsilanti A Community of Opportunity


WCSO Sheriff Badge LogoPolice Services are provided by the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office under a contract with the Charter Township of Ypsilanti. Ypsilanti Township contracts for 38 Police Service Units (PSU) which includes 38 sheriff's deputies, 6 sergeants and 1 lieutenant. In addition to uniformed patrol services, our police contract supports a Community Action Team (CAT) that investigates violent crimes, a Neighborhood Enforcement Team focused on neighborhood based issues, traffic enforcement specialists, and a neighborhood watch liaison officer. The investigation of major crimes also receives support from the Detective Bureau and other collaborative support units.

In addition, the U.S. Marshal Service operates a branch of its Detroit Fugitive Apprehension Team (DFAT) at the Ypsilanti Township Law Enforcement Center, as well as parole officers from the Michigan Department of Corrections.

Township Supervisor Brenda Stumbo manages the budget for the police services contract and coordinates the efforts of the Sheriff's Office with the Township's Office of Community Standards. Supervisor Stumbo also acts as a liaison between Township residents and the Sheriff's Office and is consulted about decisions on resource allocation.

Ypsilanti Township is committed to providing professional and courteous law enforcement services for Township residents, business owners and visitors. The Township endorses the Total Policing philosophy that is used by the Sheriff's Office to address various crime and disorder issues.


Starting Thursday, August 13, 2020, Washtenaw County upgraded their Nixle program to the Everbridge Alert system to communicate with citizens and businesses during emergencies and other critical events. Residents are encouraged to register immediately to receive these alerts at washtenaw.org/alerts.

If you are a former user of the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office Nixle program to receive emergency alerts, you will need to create a new account in the Everbridge Portal to confirm which notifications you would like to receive and how you receive them.

Washtenaw County uses the Everbridge system to alert residents about a variety of events, ranging from severe weather, hazardous materials incidents, floods and other emergencies to more routine announcements such as road closures and other public safety messages. Messages are sent to residents on their preferred contact method including cell phone, SMS, home phone, email, fax, pager and more—to ensure real-time access to potentially lifesaving information.

The Supervisor's Office coordinates a Neighborhood Watch network comprised of nearly 50 neighborhood watch organizations and neighborhood associations that interact with the Sheriff's Office on a regular basis. Residents are encouraged to participate in a neighborhood watch group in your area.
