The Lower Peninsula Law Enforcement Advisory Committee is comprised of fourteen police chiefs and sheriffs. Representatives from the Michigan Sheriff's Association (MSA), Michigan Chiefs of Police, Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards (MCOLES), and MMRMA's defense counsel also attend meetings as ad hoc participants. Meetings are held at regional locations approximately six times per year to address all aspects of law enforcement operations, including current issues, legislation, policy and procedures, training, and grants.
This committee has been described as one of the best police forums in the state, and its members have become excellent risk managers who continually strive to improve professionalism while reducing liability.
The Upper Peninsula Law Enforcement Advisory Committee is comprised of several police chiefs, sheriffs, and public safety directors from members across the U.P. The committee helps develop model policies and procedures and identify methods of reducing risk and liability related to law enforcement activities. Committee meetings are conducted on a quarterly basis in Marquette, Escanaba, or Iron Mountain.
At least once a year, a joint meeting is held with the Lower Peninsula Law Enforcement Advisory Committee, allowing participants to develop strong working relationships and brainstorming opportunities.
