All officers shall function as provided by the rules and regulations of the police department.
B. Part Time Police Officers:
1. Appointment: The chief of police is authorized to appoint, discipline and discharge part time officers. Part time officers shall be members of the regular police department except for pension purposes. Part time officers shall, at all times during the performance of their duties, be subject to the direction and control of the chief of police.
2. Hiring Standards: Prior to being hired, a part time police officer must have previous law enforcement experience or must obtain certification within eighteen (18) months after the date of hire, according to 50 Illinois Compiled Statutes 705/8.2. The applicant must also have a screening and background check, which includes a fingerprint check through the Illinois criminal history and federal bureau of investigation (FBI); and pass a physical fitness, power test, that is based on the Illinois training board requirements for minimum fitness for a police officer.
3. Training Standards 1 : The part time officer, upon hiring by the village and the village police department, will be required to complete a field training program as determined by the chief of police with a certified field training officer and successful understanding of the Broadview police department training guide. The part time officer will be monitored and evaluated periodically. The part time officer must also attend in-service training as authorized by the chief of police. Such standards shall be submitted to the Illinois law enforcement training standards board upon passage of this section.
4. Powers And Duties: A part time officer shall have all the powers and duties as a regular member of the police department, but shall not be assigned under any circumstances, to supervise or direct full time police officers of the village police department. Part time officers shall not be used as permanent replacements for permanent full time police officers. Part time officers must also abide by all rules, regulations, policies and general orders as set forth by the chief of police and the village.
C. Auxiliary Police Officers:
1. Powers And Duties: Auxiliary police officers shall not be members of the regular police department of the village. Auxiliary police officers shall not supplement members of the regular police department in the performance of their assigned and normal duties, except as otherwise provided in this code. Auxiliary police officers shall only be assigned to perform the following duties in the village: a) to aid or direct traffic within the municipality, b) to aid in control of natural or manmade disasters, and c) to aid in case of civil disorder as directed by the chief of police. When it is impractical for members of the regular police department to perform those normal and regular police duties, however, the chief of police of the regular police department may assign auxiliary police officers to perform those normal and regular police duties. Identification symbols worn by auxiliary police officers shall be different and distinct from those used by members of the regular police department. Auxiliary police officers shall at all times during the performance of their duties be subject to the direction and control of the chief of police. Auxiliary police officers shall not carry firearms, except with the permission of the chief of police and while in uniform and in the performance of their duties. Auxiliary police officers, when on duty, shall also be conservators of the peace and shall have the powers specified in 65 Illinois Compiled Statutes 5/3.1-15-25.
2. Training And Hiring: Auxiliary police officers, before entering upon any of their duties, shall receive a course of training in the use of weapons and other police procedures appropriate for the exercise of the powers conferred upon them under this section. Before being permitted to carry a firearm, however, an auxiliary police officer must have the same course of training as required of peace officers under section 2 of the peace officer firearm training act. The village may require that all auxiliary police officers be residents of the village. Before the appointment of an auxiliary police officer, the person's fingerprints shall be taken, and no person shall be appointed as an auxiliary police officer if that person has been convicted of a felony or other crime involving moral turpitude.
