MSUDPPS welcomes Maria Valayil as their new police social worker

The Michigan State University Department of Police and Public Safety recently welcomed Maria Valayil as their new full time police social worker. The police social worker accompanies officers on welfare checks and follows up on incidents that may indicate an individual in the MSU community is struggling with their mental health. Valayil’s role will shift the department towards a structure in which police officers and social workers can work together in responding to mental health emergencies.
