Act 78 Civil Service

The Act 78 Civil Service Commission governs testing for employment, appointment, and promotion of fire and police personnel. The Act requires a board of civil service commissioners in cities, villages, and municipalities that utilize police and fire service, and the commission and its selected examiners provide physical, psychological, written, and oral examinations of candidates to determine the best placement for the city’s police and fire departments.
