I would seriously consider giving up the rank of Sgt. in this department if the powers to be once again give a raise only to the MPO's. I have already been @#$%ed over once with the last raise they issued after the Price Waterhouse study. What is the purpose of taking on more responsibility for less pay?

Dear Sgt.
I hate to think of all of the experienced, dedicated officers we are losing because of money.

I agree that the entire pay structure should be overhauled as you can't compartmentalize it every few years without it starting to look like a quilt.

With that being said, for the FD and PD, Commissioner Johnsons plan is the most comprehensive to get more for these two departments. It does put an increased burden on the citizens, but as one, I'm willing to pay...and would pay even more than the $20 they're asking for.

I'm retired but I was one of the "winners" that got all the raises after the Price Waterhouse study. I cold not believe that they were giving the same people raises over and over.I started to feel guilty. From my perspective, DKPD started it's down hill slide after Dick Hand left. One of the main reasons I took an early retirement was all the interference from Decatur and the higher command staff didn't have the gut's to draw the line. DKPD lost a lot of good experience with guy's that retired early because of interference from Decatur and all the unnecessary crap that went on...Get some supervisors with gonads and smarts and start backing the officers instead of all the PR junk ....start policing with gusto again...It's a war out there! Will the new CEO have a big security detail like Jones too?
