Personal Protection Orders

A Personal Protection Order, commonly known as a “PPO.” is a court order that protects you from being harassed, beaten, assaulted, molested, wounded, or stalked.  The PPO prohibits a named individual from doing these things to you.  It also prohibits the named individual from entering your premises and removing your children, unless there is an overriding court order.

To obtain a PPO you must go to the:

Wayne County Circuit Court Third Judicial Circuit - Civil Division - Click for map

You must follow the instructions carefully when filling out the forms.  The forms are then forwarded to a Judge.  To have a named individual served notice of the PPO, you can contact the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office at (313) 224-2222.
