Independent Review Committee (IRC)

The Independent Review Committee (IRC) for the University at Albany Police Department was created by the Vice President for Student Success in collaboration with the Chief of the University Police Department (UPD) in the Spring 2014 semester.

The Committee’s charge includes two principal responsibilities:

1. To review UPD's complaint investigation process; and

2. To review UPD's responses to designated incidents to ensure that UPD is following department policies; and

3. To collect information from the University Community concerning perceptions and opinions about campus safety and the performance of UPD. It will prepare an annual report summarizing these matters. Additional information can be found on the Annual Audit page.
