Police Merit Commission

Avon Police Merit Commission

The Avon Police Merit Commission consists of five Avon citizens who serve as a governing body for the Avon Police Department.  Two of the commissioners are appointed by the Town Council President, one commissioner is appointed by the Avon Town Council, and the remaining two commissioners are appointed by the officers themselves.  The commission provides civilian oversight for the Avon Police Department.  Duties and responsibilities of the commission include serving as the safety board for the purposes of hiring, promotion, and discipline of all merit police officers.

The commission meets once a month, or as needed, in a public meeting format, at the Avon Police Department.  Merit Commission meetings are typically held on the 2nd Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Avon Police & Town Court Building 6550 E US Hwy 36 Avon, IN 46123. A posting of each meeting agenda is displayed on the Town of Avon's website, and in the lobby of the Avon Police Department 48 hours prior to the meeting. These meetings are open to the public.  The Avon Police Merit Commission is established in accordance with the state statues of the State of Indiana in the effort to establish political neutrality and an unbiased/objective panel.  All meetings are publicly posted in accordance with Indiana statutes.
