ISP Board

Indiana State Police Board Membership

The ISP Board is created by statute: I.C. 10-11-2-5.

All six members of the Board are appointed by the governor, unlike many law enforcement merit boards, which usually have a member elected by the officers. As required by the statute, "not more than three (3) may belong to the same political party," so historically the Board has been composed by three members of each of the two main parties in Indiana.

The appointments are made by the Governor. The Governor's office uses a selection process, although no particular process is required by statute. The appointment of new Board members is entirely within the Governor's purview.

The terms are staggered by statute, but the law does not require a specific rotation of members. Instead, members are appointed for a four-year term when vacancies occur, either by the end of a term or resignation or death. The statute lists six geographic regions, and each region provides one Board member. This ensures representation of all the different areas of the state.
