The DPS Oversight Committee 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. All are for two-year terms.

The DPS Oversight Committee considers grievances against any police officer or the department. Its findings and recommendations are reported to the executive vice president and chief financial officer.

The staff member positions on the committee are elected through an electronic ballot. Unionized staff elect a committee member in odd-numbered years, and non-union staff elect a member in even-numbered years.

This year, the election will be for the non-union staff member term, 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 11 and the election will take place June 11-22.
