Frederick Approves New Police Contract

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — The Frederick city police force has a new labor contract.

The Frederick News-Post reports that the city’s Board of Aldermen approved two-year agreements Thursday with both commissioned and noncommissioned police officers.

The contracts include no wage increase in the first year of the agreement. Some officers will get 4 percent raises in the second year, beginning July 1.

All police officers will get the 4 percent raise in July if the city ends this fiscal year with a budget surplus of more than $1.1 million.
