WASHTENAW COUNTY, Mich. -

Beyond the Badge is an online web-video series focused on the men and women who dedicate their lives to working for the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office. The goal of the show, which launched Sunday, is to take the viewer beyond the badge and share the stories of strength and hope that take place every day in and around Washtenaw County.

Each episode will be about 8 to 12 minutes in length and will center around common theme. The purpose of the show is to connect the community and the Sheriff’s Office in new ways.

The series is comprised of footage shot on the scene, in patrol cars and from dashboard cameras along with officer interviews, resident interviews, 911 calls, and other footage from the dispatch and corrections departments.

In between episodes, we’ll feature additional content each week including:

  • Updates from the field
  • Crew Journals
  • Featured Officers
  • Good News from around the County
  • New Episode Trailers
  • Public Service Announcements
  • Fun Facts

Beyond the Badge is a joint project with the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office and LaFontaine Automotive Group.
