Vision and Mission Statement


To foster a transparent and mutually beneficial relationship between the Ann Arbor Police Department and the Community at large.


  • To encourage the AAPD's respectful treatment of all community members
  • To enhance communication and sharing of information between the AAPD and the community
  • To promote positive interactions between the police department and members of vulnerable, at-risk and marginalized groups within the community
  • To build mutual trust between the community and law enforcement


The Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards (MCOLES) is nationally recognized as a leader in developing training and ethical standards for law enforcement officers. Governor Gretchen Whitmer recently expanded the commission to bring community voices to the table to improve community-police relations. ICPOC Chair Lisa Jackson is among the three inaugural community members to join MCOLES, bringing civilian oversight expertise and adding community representation to the policy-making table.
