EAST LANSING, Mich. — The East Lansing Independent Police Oversight Commission invites the community at large to attend its annual public input meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 2 at 6 p.m. at the East Lansing Hannah Community Center, 819 Abbot Road.

The annual forum is in accordance with Ordinance No. 1503 to receive input from the public. The Commission was established to increase accountability of the East Lansing Police Department (ELPD) and to strengthen conditions leading to trust in ELPD by the community that it is pledged to serve. Because the East Lansing City Council is committed to the goal of racial equity, the Commission will give priority to addressing racial inequities as well as use of force in policing.

The Commission will enable members of the community to participate in reviewing and making recommendations about police department policies, practices and procedures, and it will provide means for prompt, impartial and fair review of complaints brought by individuals against police officers or ELPD. Members of the Commission may participate in events, organize events, engage in public education and listen to people in the Greater Lansing area concerning matters within the Commission’s scope.
