The election to fill the union representative staff position on the university’s Police Department Oversight Committee is underway. Online voting is available today through 4 p.m. Friday.

Members of the following unions on the Ann Arbor campus and at Michigan Medicine are eligible to vote: AFSCME, IUOE, HOA, MNA and Skilled Trades.

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

The Police Department Oversight Committee considers grievances against any police officer or the U-M Police Department. Its findings and recommendations are reported to the executive director of the Division of Public Safety and Security.

Additional information about the committee and its procedures may be found at the Police Department Oversight Committee website.

Voting more than once or for more than one candidate will result in disqualification.  For questions about the PDOC or the election process, contact Julie Doman at or Staff Human Resources at 734-763-2387.
