The Civilian Review Committee of the Muncie Human Rights Commission

The Civilian Review Committee of the Muncie Human Rights Commission exists to promote just relationships between police and civilians. Toward this end, we will review complaints in regard to the MPD on behalf of the MHRC. We are a diverse non-partisan group of thirteen local citizens from many sectors of society and are therefore able to offer a broad perspective. We seek to protect police officers from unfair or inaccurate accusations and protect citizens from unethical treatment. We hope to facilitate an open line of communication between police and citizens. 

Makeup of committee.  At least 1/3 of the members of the Committee must be persons of color. At least 1 member of the Committee must identify as having a disability. It is strongly recommended that gender representation on the Committee be fairly even (women / men) and that members of the LGBTQ community be encouraged to apply. Committee members must be residents of Delaware County. Geographic diversity of Committee members’ homes is strongly recommended.

Built in 1928 at a cost of over $400,000, the Muncie Fieldhouse was built to house Muncie Central Bearcat basketball games. The Fieldhouse contains 7,635 seats, making it one of the largest high school gymnasiums in the country--a reflection on the importance of the game of basketball to Indiana.
