DETROIT (AP) (10/28/18)- A newspaper investigation says Michigan has 3,000 civilian officers that operate with no state oversight.

The Detroit Free Press reports that the state hasn't created training requirements for the reserve officers, has no standards for screening their qualifications and doesn't have a process for monitoring their conduct.

The Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards says its unsure when regulations will be put in place.
