Broadmoor Police Commission

The governing body of the Broadmoor Police Protection District is a Police Commission of three residents elected at large by the voters of the district. Each commissioner is elected for a term of four years. The presiding officer of the Police Commission is the chairman and is selected annually by a vote of the sitting commissioners. The three commissioners serve without compensation.

The primary responsibility of the Board of Police Commissioners is the formulation and evaluation of policy. Routine matters concerning the operational aspects of the Broadmoor Police Department are the sole responsibility of the Chief of Police.

The Police Commission selects and appoints only the Chief of Police. The Chief of Police is responsible for hiring all employees of the police department. The Police Commission also sets policy, determines and sets the annual budget, and hears appeals in certain personnel matters.

The Commission meets the second Tuesday of every month.  Members who live in the city of Broadmoor are welcome to attend.

Note: Commission members are strictly volunteer positions within the community.
