INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis police officers will receive a 9 percent raise over the next four years after the city agreed to a new four-year contract Friday.

The contract runs from Jan. 1, 2017, through December 31, 2020, and promises IMPD officers the following raises:

  • 3 percent in 2017
  • 2 percent in 2018
  • 2 percent in 2019
  • 2 percent in 2020

Fraternial Order of Police President Rick Snyder issued the following statement Friday evening in response to the new contract: 

“This has been a deliberate process which has allowed our police officers, elected officials and our citizens to balance the need for proper staffing within our police department while also retaining a quality workforce of highly skilled police officers.

From the beginning, the FOP has made clear our primary concern has revolved around the safety of our community and our police officers as it relates to the current staffing of the IMPD.  Our membership has worked with the City of Indianapolis to identify multiple efficiencies and cost savings so that more officers may be hired while also ensuring the retention of our quality workforce.  We appreciate the commitment of Mayor Joe Hogsett to the safety and wellbeing of the women and men of the IMPD.  Our officers look forward to having this matter resolved so that they may continue to focus on the safety and quality of life within our neighborhoods for the residents and visitors of the great City of Indianapolis.”
