The State Worker: Read the California Highway Patrol's contract addendum

agebert@sacbee.comJuly 8, 2013 

The California Association of Highway Patrolmen's annual salary calculation, which is based on the salaries of five local law enforcement agencies, yielded a 5.9 percent raise for the union this year.

California Highway Patrol officers pay is determined by a formula which calculates the average total compensation of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and the San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Oakland police departments.

Three of those agencies have negotiated raises recently. Los Angeles police officers received a 2 percent raise last year and are scheduled to receive 4 percent increase this year. San Diego officers negotiated a 7 percent raise over 5 years and the Los Angeles sheriff's deputies made a deal to get a 6 percent increase over two years.
