In April of 1978, Boardman Township became the first township in Ohio to implement Civil Service protection for police officers and firefighters.

The Civil Service Commission is composed of three citizens of the township appointed by the trustees to maintain professionalism in the departments. The commission adopted a set of rules and regulations to regulate the various aspects of employment and promotion within the safety forces. They also hear appeals of individuals with regard to disciplinary charges. Institution of the Civil Service Commission has removed political pressures from the hiring, firing and promotion within the safety forces.

Whenever a vacancy occurs within the Police or Fire Department, it is filled from an existing eligibility list. Every two years (on the even-number years) the Civil Service Commission administers a competitive entry-level examination for police and fire candidates. All candidates passing the examination are placed on the eligibility list in accordance with their grades. These eligibility lists are in effect for two years.
