2.24.010Establishment of civil service.

The city council acknowledges the fact that there are now and have been for more than six months continuously last past three full-time police officers, including the chief of police, employed by the city in the city police force, although one of them has not been so named or labeled. This city, having three fully paid policemen, should provide for civil service in the police department and should create a civil service commission. This is necessary in order to have a stable, well-trained and efficient police department.

(Ord. 656 § 1, 1971)
