  1. In order to ensure a high level of performance, regular performance reviews will be carried out.
  2. The objectives of these reviews are:
    • to achieve Commission goals;
    • to provide employees with a clear and concise understanding of their duties and responsibilities within their assigned jobs;
    • to establish measuring tools by which the employee’s performance in completing their duties and responsibilities can be evaluated;
    • to identify employee training and staff development needs; and
    • to encourage employees to identify and overcome barriers which limit performance.
  3. The Commission will conduct at a minimum an annual review of the Executive Director, the Chief Internal Auditor, and the Chief of Police.
  4. The Executive Director will conduct at a minimum an annual review of all other Commission employees not listed in Guideline 3.


  1. The Executive Director is responsible for:
