|Police Review Board Members|
The Civil Service Commission is charged with overseeing the employment of Portland’s Police and Fire personnel. The Commission is made up of two subcommittees, the Employment subcommittee and the Police Citizen Review Subcommittee.
The Employment Subcommittee approves written examinations for Civil Service testing and other elements of the testing process such as fitness and medical and job suitability exams, participates in oral interviews with candidates, and may hold hearings on discipline cases.
To qualify as a committee member you must be a resident of Portland and be a person of good moral character. Although a familiarity with employment practices and the legal process would be helpful, they are not required. What is necessary is a desire to be involved in a critical but background role, a capacity for objective judgments, and good communication skills.
Anyone who is or has been a City employee or City Councilor or anyone who is a relative of a present member of the Police or Fire departments are disqualified from becoming a committee member.
