Civil Service Commission

The Civil Service Commission is an oversight board created by the Board of Commissioners for the purpose of overseeing the hiring and promotion process within the Township Police Department or Fire Department services (as applicable) as required by the PA First Class Township Code.

All sworn law enforcement positions within the Police Department are civil service positions, as well as certain fire fighting positions.  The Civil Service Commission is charged with establishing testing and selection criteria for all applicants for entry level and promotion positions within the Police Department and certain fire services positions.  When there is an opening within the Police Department or fire service, the Civil Service Commission schedules a competitive examination, usually consisting of written, oral, and physical fitness components, for all candidates. Also, the Civil Service Commission oversees the conducting of extensive background checks on potential candidates for police positions. Once all of the testing is complete, the Civil Service Commission ranks all candidates and forwards the list of the various candidates for hiring consideration by the Township Manager, Police Chief and/or Board of Commissioners.  The Civil Service Commission meets when necessary.

The Manheim Township Civil Service Commission has three (3) members.  Each member is appointed by the Board of Commissioners for a term of six (6) years.
