The Westfield Police Commission is a three member commission appointed by the mayor.  Their appointments are staggered and are subject to review and approval every two years of service.  The commission has responsibility for the charge, management and control of the officers and members of the Westfield Police Department.  Some of the duties include, but are not limited to, the hiring, terminating and promoting of police officers, ruling on grievances, deciding on disciplinary matters, and approval of funding.
