Staff nominations are being accepted for the non-union staff representative to the U-M Police Department Oversight Committee. This committee receives and makes recommendations regarding grievances against any police officer or the UMPD.

The PDOC consists of two staff (one union and one non-union), two students and two faculty members (one Senate and one non-Senate) nominated and elected by their peers for two-year terms.

One staff member of the committee is elected in odd-numbered years, by staff members represented by a union; and one is elected in even-numbered years, by staff members not represented by a union.

This year, the election will be conducted for the two-year term for the non-union staff member, which begins July 1.

Staff members not represented by unions may nominate themselves or agree to be nominated.

Nominations can be made online through May 12.  The election to appoint the new staff representative will take place June 10-23. Appointment of the newly elected non-union staff member to the committee takes place on July 1.
