Board of Fire and Police Commissioners

Mission: The Board of Fire and Police Commissioners (BFPC) consists of three members whose duties are set forth by state law and include the screening of all police officer candidates, screening for department promotions and conducting disciplinary cases forwarded to it by the Chief of Police.  The Mayor and Board of Trustees determine the need for additional or replacement personnel on the Police Department; however, they have no input on the selection of Police Officer candidates (except in the case of the Police Chief).  The Board of Fire and Police Commissioners maintains an eligibility list from which officers are hired.  The two fire protection districts serving Burr Ridge handle their own hiring since they are separate governmental entities.
