HR Policies & Procedures Manual

A Human Resources manual is essential for any organization to ensure legal compliance, and consistent and proper administration of the Town’s human resource policies. The Manual incorporates the Town’s current Atherton Police Officers’ Association Memorandum of Understanding, the Unrepresented Employees Salary and Benefits Resolution, and via cross-reference, the Police Department Lexipol Guidelines. Lexipol provides state-specific policies and procedures for Police Operations (essentially standard operating procedures addressing everything from weapons qualification to report writing). It includes more than 150 policies based on federal and state statutes, case law and law enforcement best practices and is used in public safety organizations across the nation.
