Sound Off

I read on a recent agenda from the Lawrence City Commission that the city was applying for a federal grant that would reimburse the city for the starting salary and benefits of up to four police officers. What is the starting salary of a Lawrence police officer?

The entry level salary plus benefits for one officer is $55,982 per year, according to city documents related to its application for the 2010 COPS Hiring Program Grant.
