Under the leadership of Sheriff Anthony M. Wickersham, the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office houses over 1,200 inmates awaiting trial and prisoners sentenced to one year or less. In order to provide inmates with a safe environment for the duration of their incarceration, the Macomb County jail is fully staffed with Corrections Officers, Deputy Sheriff’s, Sheriff Command Officers, and numerous support staff and volunteers. The Macomb County Sheriff’s Office provides inmates with multiple programs and services to teach inmates the essential life skills needed prior to release in order to decrease recidivism. A few of the programs offered include counseling services and work release programs. For convenience, the jail facility offers an online inmate locator to provide general information about an inmate’s arrest.
For every warrant for which you are posting bond, there is an additional $10.00 fee for processing that warrant. (This is a State mandate). The busiest time for posting bond is between 5PM and 8PM. Expect a long delay during this period. Between the hours of 12 noon and 1PM and again between the hours of 7PM and 8PM, the Jail Office is short-staffed due to lunches. Try to avoid calling during these times as there are not as many people to answer your calls. When you post bond at the court, the court should send us information that you have done so. The inmate cannot be released until we receive the paperwork from the court.
