Seattle City Council seeks candidates for Public Safety Civil Service Commission

SEATTLE - City Council seeks applicants for appointment as Public Safety Civil Service Commissioner.  The Public Safety Civil Service Commission is comprised of three members and each commissioner serves a three-year term.  An Executive Director supports the Commission and manages operation of the Commission's office.

The Public Safety Civil Service Commission serves as a quasi-judicial body, providing fair and impartial hearings of appeals for sworn police and uniformed fire employees involving disciplinary actions, examination and testing, and alleged violations of the City Charter, Personnel Rules and the Personnel Ordinance. In its quasi-judicial capacity, the Commission administers oaths, issues subpoenas, receives evidence, compels the production of documents, questions witnesses at hearings, and issues orders.

The Public Safety Civil Service Commission normally meets monthly on the third Thursday of the month.  The regular monthly meetings begin at 10:00 a.m.

Commissioners receive a $5,200 annual stipend as compensation for their work.

Interested candidates should deliver a resume and cover letter by 5 p.m. on Monday, February 3 to Councilmember Bruce Harrell by email (, by fax (206-684-8587; provide cover memo with Attn: Bruce Harrell) or by mail to:
