Council members approved the pay raise Tuesday and the increases will begin on January 1. The increases will be a raise of 30 percent. The vote passed 6-0.

The money for the raises came from Proposition P, which was approved by voters in April.

Officials say officers will now receive more sophisticated gear and be better equipped.
