Michigan State University has established an inclusion and anti-bias unit within its police force. The new unit is charged with proactively addressing police and community-related issues associated with bias. The new unit is devoted to increasing trust within the university community by listening to concerns and finding positive methods to solve issues. It is believed to be one of the first such units among university police forces across the nation.

Lou Anna K. Simon, president of Michigan State University stated that “this is an important and innovative step toward MSU achieving our vision of a truly genuine inclusive, world-class university. Our police department has been at the forefront of our efforts, and the creation of this unit is yet another example of the steps we are taking and our commitment to diversity and better understanding the needs of our students, faculty and staff.”

Sgt. Florene McGlothian-Taylor, a 26-veteran of the police force, will lead the unit.
