This group of Michigan law enforcement executives was convened for the purpose of working with the Loss Control staff, to assist with the development of law enforcement model policies and related materials. Over the years, LEAF has grown to be a valuable resource for the Michigan Municipal League and other agencies in the State when addressing law enforcement public policy issues. The membership of the LEAF Committee, which comprises Police Chiefs, Sheriffs, and Public Safety Directors from agencies of all sizes from around the State, is representative of the Michigan Municipal Liability and Property Pool and Workers’ Compensation Fund members that have law enforcement agencies.
The Forum is supported in their mission by members of the Michigan Municipal League Risk Management Services staff, Loss Control, and by attorneys who specialize in the area of police liability and legal defense. Collectively, these individuals assist the members of the Forum in researching various public policy issues, and in framing model policy and procedure language for the Manual of Law Enforcement Risk Reduction.
The LEAF Committee meets several times yearly to exchange information and ideas relating to law enforcement issues and, specifically, to address risk reduction efforts that affect losses from employee accidents and incidents resulting from officers’ participation in high-risk police activities.
