The Winthrop Harbor Board of Police Commissioners is comprised of three members appointed by the village Mayor and Board of Trustees.  These individuals operate autonomously of the village board and administer the testing, selection and hiring of our full time police officers. 

Illinois statutes provide laws under which the police commission must operate. The commission is also responsible for the selection and promotion of officers within the department. In the event of a police disciplinary matter, the commission will convene and hear evidence presented by the Chief of Police and the disciplined officer. The commission has the final authority in suspending, demoting or terminating a WHPD police officer.
