The Los Angeles Police Protective League (LAPPL) announced today that rank-and-file officers have approved the proposed contract with the City of Los Angeles. More than 2,700 LAPD officers voted over four days in favor of the successor agreement.

“We’re pleased with the membership’s ratification, especially considering the past eight months of uncertainty. The terms of this contract will help boost morale, and we can move forward knowing this is a step toward adequately compensating LAPD officers for their tireless work and dedication to the residents of Los Angeles,” LAPPL President Craig Lally said. 

Highlights of the four-year deal, effective from July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2018, include:

  • 4 percent Cost-of-Living Adjustment (COLA) effective July 2016; 2 percent COLA effective July 2017 and a 2 percent COLA January 2018;
  • The equivalent of a 5 percent increase for the healthcare subsidy;
  • Increase of the uniform allowance to $1,525;
  • An optional overtime buy down and a substantial increase in cash overtime throughout the terms of the contract.

Why in blazes doesn't the article give a clue about the actual compensation, benefits, and other goodies rec'd by LAPD? Talking about percentage increases is meaningless without these facts.

Why does anyone need to know their compensation or benefits. If the person who posted the "goodies" comment (Daniel Sanborne) wants to know the employees' personal business then I should know his. Police officers are not garbage. LAPD officers are professionals who risk their lives on a daily basis. They are not the highest compensated law enforcement entity and have gone without a raise. They have been without a contract for almost one year. If the "goodies" poster is so concerned about benefits and salaries then maybe he should take a closer look at politicians whose salaries and "goodies" far exceed those of police officers and they do a whole lot less for their constituents.

The wages of almost any public official is available on the internet with minimal keystrokes. And Daniel did'n refer to any officer as "garbage" but rather asked a valid question. I suggest decaffeinated coffee for the foreseeable future...
