Per RCW 41.26, the Richland Police Pension Board is a seven member, quasi-judicial Board that provides certain active and retired Richland Police Officers and their beneficiaries, with benefit services that are mandated by state law and the Richland Police Pension Board Policies. The Board is responsible for policies, disability applications, approval of benefit claims, and oversight of the Police Pension Fund.

Police officers eligible for these services are those who, as a result of being hired before October 1, 1977, are members of the Law Enforcement Officers and Fire Fighters Retirement System, Plan 1 (LEOFF1) and those who are pre-LEOFF, that is, those who were hired before the March 1, 1970, effective date of the Washington Law Enforcement Officers' and Fire Fighters' Retirement System Act.
