Sherman City Council to consider pay increase for police

By  | 

SHERMAN, TX -- The Sherman City Council will be considering an ordinance that may give officers more pay.

In their meeting Monday evening, they will discuss the ordinance that would provide higher starting pay to officers with prior experience.

The change would allow new officers to enter the department laterally rather than starting at the bottom.

Experienced police who are new to the department would see their pay increase between $5,700 and $7,500 annually, based on experience.
