About the Commission

The Klickitat County Civil Service Commission was established pursuant to RCW Chap. 41.14 to oversee the process for filling Civil Service jobs with qualified personnel, and to establish a merit system of employment for county deputy sheriffs and other employees of the office of county sheriff, thereby raising the standards and efficiency of such offices and law enforcement in general.
