Council approves police pay raises

(Darrin Wright/1190 WOWO 107.5 FM)

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Fort Wayne police officers are about to get a pay boost.

The Fort Wayne City Council last night approved a new collective bargaining agreement with the police union that includes 5% raises each of the next three years for all first-class patrol officers, according to the Journal Gazette.

The hope is that increasing pay will help the FWPD with its hiring and retention efforts.

The pay increase was approved by a unanimous vote, and it also includes a boost to “longevity bonuses” for officers who stay on with the department year over year.

I’m surprised Sharron Tucker would vote for a pay raise… She was part of the anti-police crowd
