Civil service helps assure that firefighters and law enforcement officers are recruited through open competition, hired and promoted on the basis of merit, and are demoted, suspended, removed from office, or discharged only for cause.
For Washington's cities and towns, civil service is established for firefighters by Chapter 41.08 RCW and Chapter 2.28 of the Sunnyside Municipal Code and by Chapter 41.12 RCW and Chapter 2.20.060 of the Sunnyside Municipal Code for police.
