Fire & Police Commission
The City of Burbank Fire and Police Commission
is a civilian body comprised of three members appointed by the City Mayor
operating separate of the City Council and overseeing general policy in the
Burbank Fire Department and Police Department. The Commission is responsible
for administering the testing and hiring of our full or part time police
officers and firefighters. The chiefs are responsible for the day-to-day
operation of the departments.
The Illinois statutes provide laws under which the Fire and Police
Commission must operate. The Commission is also responsible for the
promotion of officers within the Fire and Police Departments. In the event
of a disciplinary matter, the Commission will convene and hear evidence
presented by the Chief of the Fire Department or Police Department and the
disciplined officer. The Commission has the final authority in suspending,
demoting or terminating an officer or fire fighter.
The Burbank Fire and Police Commissioners regular meetings are held at the Burbank
City Hall chambers located at 6530 W. 79th Street, 2nd Floor.
