Welcome to my new blog. I’m Dave Harvey and serve as the Executive Director of the Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards (MCOLES). As part of the MCOLES 5-year Strategic Plan, the Commission agreed that a good way to improve information sharing with potential recruits, basic training academies, students, law enforcement officers and departments, as well as the general public, was to create a blog by the MCOLES Executive Director. I hope that you will gain a better understanding about who we are and what it is we do here at MCOLES. To read a short biography about me, please click on the left link “About”.
MCOLES MISSION STATEMENT
The Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards is created by law to serve the people of the state of Michigan by ensuring public safety and supporting the criminal justice community.
We provide leadership through setting professional standards in education, selection, employment, licensing, license revocation, and funding in law enforcement and criminal justice, in both the public and private sectors.
I look forward to sharing information with you about everything that encompasses law enforcement, as well as the criminal justice community.
