MSP: Flint police did not violate policy

Posted: Updated:

The Michigan State Police said the Flint Police Department did not violate the LEIN policy.

The department was under investigation for allegedly looking into the background of a mayoral candidate.

MSP said they received a complaint members of the Flint Police Department illegally checked mayoral candidate Arthur Woodson's criminal history. 

The Flint Police Department was required to do an investigation and respond back with their results in 90 days, MSP said. The department was also required to give MSP an update within 45 days, according to officials. 

Woodson claims officers were trying to spread their findings on Facebook.

"After evaluating the information submitted by your agency and the recommendation of the staff of LEIN Field Services, I am satisfied that there was no violation of LEIN policy," Dawn Brinningstaull, division director for the criminal justice information center, said in a letter to Flint police.
