Sorry Chief Beck, No Raise for You This Year!
The city's budget woes are hitting everyone, including LA's top cop. Yesterday the Police Commission agreed during a closed session meeting that Los Angeles Police Department Chief Charlie Beck will not be offered a raise, reports the Daily News. Beck's current salary will remain at $307,290.Commission President John Mack says Beck is an admirable leader, and knows that even if he were offered a raise, Beck would not accept it. "In July, Beck volunteered to take a 10 percent pay cut when increases to city employees' salaries were frozen."
“It’s very clear that we have a leader who leads by example, one who recognizes the importance of shared sacrifice…in this extremely, extremely difficult time," said Mack of the 33-year LAPD vet following yesterday's meeting.
