State Police Commission

About the Commission

The State Police Commission is a seven member body that has exclusive jurisdiction and final authority over the administration of the state police service. The Commission serves as an impartial review board that enacts and adjudicates State Police Commission Rules to regulate state police personnel activities, and hears appeals from commissioned full-time law enforcement officers.

Six of the members are appointed by the Governor; the seventh is an employee representative elected by the classified members of the State Police Service. Each member serves a six year term. When choosing an appointed member, the Governor must select from a list of three people nominated by the president of one of the state's major private universities. Effective January 16, 2023, appointments to the State Police Commission require consent of the Senate. Current members of the commission are listed below.
