I. Police and Fire Contract Provisions – New Data Just Released
Are you getting ready to head into negotiations?
The Police and Fire Labor Data Service provides resources tracking the trends in police and fire contract settlements. The service includes data in Microsoft Excel files. Included are selected contract provisions, such as agreement years, college provisions, travel reimbursement, vacation and longevity schedules, health benefits, and more. Visit the League’s website for the full list of provisions included. Also included are department salary scales, which include a calculation of horizontal and vertical increases for each year.
The League’s goal is to provide its membership with the most current data for the most departments across the State. We began collecting this data in January 2019, and will continue collecting through 2020. However, because we know how important and time sensitive this information is, we are releasing the data in two editions. Available now is the first edition, with all data that has been collected thus far.
The second edition is expected to be available as early as March 2020. Once the additional data for the second edition is available, it will be emailed automatically to all those that purchased the first edition.
This first edition includes data for approximately 330 police departments and 50 fire departments.
The data is available electronically, allowing you to easily search and sort through information as it best applies to your municipality. The Police and Fire Labor Data Service is part of the League’s Bureau of Municipal Information.
