The Civil Service Commission is responsible for the oversight of the recruitment, selection and placement of uniformed firefighters and sworn police officers below the level of chief.
The Commission also investigates in public hearings the suspension, demotion and/or the discharge of a member of the Civil Service at the member's request, to determine whether such action was or was not made for political or religious reasons and was or was not made in good faith for cause.
