About the Commission

The Civil Service Commission was established in 1981, when the citizens voted to adopt the State’s Municipal Civil Service Law, as it applies to sworn police officers. In compliance with State Law, the Commission adopted rules relating to the appointments and the promotions of sworn police officers. Furthermore, the Civil Service Commission conducts investigations and hearings related to police officers appeals of disciplinary actions.
