    There is a debate over whether or not the State should fund a new downtown Lansing police headquarters being built. Many people in the legislature see the move from the East Lansing headquarters as an unnecessary move and a waste of precious tax dollars. They don't want to see the State fund the building especially after the layoff of over 100 troopers. A 25 year lease for $3 million a year with option to buy has already been signed, but can only be carried out if passed in the House.

    The purpose of the Michigan State Police headquarters, which is currently located in East Lansing, is to provide a 24-hour statewide quality police service for the safety and protection of the people and their property in the state of Michigan. Its main responsibilities are to reduce the opportunities for crime, reduce traffic accidents, and to act as a first responder to any citizen's needs that can be addressed through the resources of the criminal justice system.

    The director of the department, who is appointed by the Governor, is also the State Director of Emergency Management and State Director of Homeland Security. The committees located within the State building on which the director is a member of are the Governor's Traffic Safety Advisory Commission, Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards, Emergency Telephone Service Committee, Automobile Theft Prevention Authority, Criminal Justice Information Systems Policy Council, and the Michigan Truck Safety Commission. The department also houses the Executive Division, State Services Bureau, Field Services Bureau, and the Administrative Services Bureau.
