Dean M. Savard

Corporal Dean Savard died after contracting COVID-19 during an outbreak among staff and inmates at the Jail Division at 570 Clinton Street in Detroit.

Corporal Savard had served with the Wayne County Sheriff's Office for 16-1/2 years. He is survived by his wife and daughter.

Beginning in early 2020, thousands of law enforcement officers and other first responders throughout the country contracted COVID-19 during the worldwide pandemic due to requirements of their job. Many of these first responders have died as a result of COVID-19, and continue to do so as the virus spreads across the United States.
