SAN DIEGO — A five-year agreement designed to keep experienced San Diego police officers from leaving for other law enforcement agencies has been passed unanimously by the City Council. The deal includes 3.3 percent raises in each of the final two years.

The  compensation agreement is expected to strengthen recruiting and retention, which have been problems for several years. In addition to the 6.6 percent pay increase, the package offers incentive-based increases.

The deal was approved by 88 percent of the SDPOA’s membership last month. City officials expect the contract extension will cost around $92 million over the next five years, with $62 million of that stemming from the restoration of holiday pay and an increased healthcare, equipment and uniform allowance.

    Why does the Mayor ever not ever do a full disclosure? If the city lost 60 million from officers going to other jurisdictions how much has the city benefitted from hiring officers from other jurisdictions? So many more questions to ask, where is a good journalist when you need one ?
