Under Michigan's Freedom of Information Act ("FOIA"), I hereby request the following records:

Please include the type of complaint (i.e., use of force, abusive language, unwarranted search) and the result of the complaint (i.e., sustained, exonerated).

2. What is the total number of complaints police officers made against their peer officers in department annually from 2006 until current? If your department logs complaints in a database, spreadsheet, or other logs, a copy of those logs is fine instead.
