Police Commissions were authorized by the Montana legislature to assist Mayors with the operation of police departments. A Police Commission is very limited in its powers and duties. It is not authorized to run a police department or even to suggest what policies should be followed by the department. Neither is the Police Commission a branch of the police department nor is it subject in any way to the control of the police department.

The Police Commission is limited by state law to very specific duties outlined under Montana Statutes. Refer to Title 7, Chapter 32 for the specific guidelines.

The Montana Constitution provides that the question of whether to review a local government be placed on the ballot every ten years. If the voters approve review at the primary election, an election for a study commission to conduct the review is held at the following general election. The voters of Wolf Point approved local government review at the June 8, 2004 primary election. A Study Commission was appointed by Mayor Golik and their purpose was to study the existing form and powers of the city government and procedures for delivery of local government services and compare them with other forms available under the laws of the state. The Local Government Review Study Commission presented their recommendations to the City Council in March, 2006. They recommended the following amendments: 1) change the election process from partisan to nonpartisan elections; and 2) operation under self-government powers. These recommendations were placed on the November 7, 2006, ballot for approval. The results of the election approved the change from partisan to nonpartisan elections and approved the change from general powers of government to self-government powers for the City of Wolf Point.
