The election for the non-union staff representative for the U-M Police Department Oversight Committee now is underway.

The candidates are Kristen Brancheau, Plant, Buildings and Grounds Services business manager; and Linda Randolph, senior computing consultant in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences.

Online voting is available now through 5 p.m. June 23.

The six-member oversight 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 receives and makes recommendations regarding grievances against any police officer or the U-M Police Department.
