Police Oversight Committee

Information

The Community that is Michigan State University provides for its citizens options for the redress of grievances against the actions of its law enforcement officers Among these are the Office of the Ombudsman, the Anti-Discrimination Judicial Board, the Office of the Vice President for Finance and Operations, and the MSU Police Oversight Committee.

The Oversight Committee is unique in that it is a legislative creation (Public Act 120) by resolution of the Board of Trustees, whose sole purpose is to receive and address grievances by persons against the Police Officers or the Police Department and may make recommendations to the Police Chief that disciplinary measures be taken by the Department against any Police Officer who is found responsible for misconduct in office.

The Oversight Committee is an impartial body through which any citizen can make a complaint about the actions of a University Police Officer. The Committee will review the investigation of complaints received to ensure that responsible procedures have been followed and actions are taken in a timely manner, when warranted.
