The election for a non-bargained-for staff member to serve a two-year term on the U-M Police Department Oversight Committee is now underway and continues through June 19.

Non-bargained-for staff can review candidate statements and vote at the University Human Resources website.

The newly elected member to the committee will begin their term in July.

The six-member committee consists of two student members, two faculty members (one Senate and one non-Senate faculty), and two staff members (one union and one non-union), who are nominated and elected by their peers for two-year terms.

The committee reviews grievances against any university police officer and makes recommendations to the executive director of the Division of Public Safety and Security.

Elections for Senate faculty and non-Senate faculty representatives are also underway through separate events. The election to select a union staff member to serve on the committee will take place in spring 2021.
