Mayor Moore Supports Pay Raise, New Work Schedule for Police

On May 16, 2024, Jeffersonville Mayor Mike Moore announced his strong support for raising the base salary for newly hired police officers by more than $6,000 along with a new five days-on and four day-off rotating work schedule.

Under a proposed amendment to the collective bargaining agreement between the City and the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #100, the patrolman salary would increase from $59,714.92 to $66,000 starting July 1st.

“This raise will go a long way in bringing the pay for our police officers in line with other departments in the area,” said Moore who is requesting the City Council approve the amendment at Monday’s meeting. “It will send a message that Jeffersonville is committed to compensating our officers for their work and sacrifice.”

The amendment also would implement an 8 ½ hour work day with five days-on and four days-off.

“This creative work schedule would be the first in the region and one of the few in the nation,” said Moore. “It allows our officers to have more flexibility in their work schedule in a very stressful job so they can spend more time with their families.”

Moore also supports a proposed increase in longevity pay for officers from 1.5% of a first-class patrolman’s pay for each year of service to a maximum of 25 years. Presently longevity pay is 1.2% for each year of service up to 20 years.

“I commend Chief Kavanaugh and the City Council for being proactive in our on-going efforts in enticing and retaining the best men and women to keep us safe. Our city is experiencing incredible growth, as Mayor I support any efforts that will make sure our residents are well protected,” said Moore.

The City Council is scheduled to consider the changes to the collective bargaining agreement at its meeting Monday at 6 p.m. on the first floor of City Hall located at 500 Quartermaster Ct. in Jeffersonville.
