Since Montgomery does not have a municipal fire department, this Board functions only in matters pertaining to the police department, and is commonly referred to locally as the Police Commission. The Board consists of 3 individuals appointed by the Village President and confirmed by the Board of Trustees. Members serve for a three-year term.
This is governed by the provisions of Division 2.1 of Article 10 of the Illinois Municipal Code.
Jason Bragg (President)
Kendall Wilson (Secretary)
Brian Baier (Commissioner)
