Civil Service is charged with the recruitment, testing, hiring, and promotion of all sheriff's office employees under Chapter 41.14 RCW.

The Board of County Commissioners appoints citizens of the county to serve on the Civil Service Commission. Each commissioner serves a six-year term without compensation and cannot hold any salaried public office or engage in county employment, other than the commission duties, during their term. The terms of the commissioners do not run consecutively. Only two commissioners can be of the same political party.
