LAPD officers demand pay hike


According to the LA Times, police department officers and family members demanded across the board pay increases in a City Council meeting Tuesday night.

The LA police union just rejected the City of LA contract offer and officers warned that the department could lose officers if a pay increase is not provided.

The contract rejected by officers would have raised the pay of nearly 1,000 officers who were hired since 2009 with a salary 20% lower than their counterparts. The deal also would have increased the amount of cash overtime paid to officers this year to $70 million, up from $15 million last year. It would also have raised the starting salary of officers to $57,420 a year from $49,924.
