Large Pay Raises for State Police Brass

Nearly half a million more dollars are going to the captains and lieutenants in the Connecticut State Police department this fiscal year.

Higher-ups in the State Police Department are slated to get pay raises of up to 56 percent. According to the Associated Press, the deal passed automatically because the state legislature chose not to vote on the contract within 30 days of its filing.

It will be their first raise since 2008.  

In 2011, 56 state troopers . All were officers who recently graduated from the academy.   

The raises will reportedly set the state back $458,000 in the current fiscal year.    

Position Old Pay New Pay Captain $82,000-$105,000 $128,000-$136,000 Lieutenant $73,000-$93,000 $113,600-$121,600

I agree with Mr Diggler. You have to look past the percentage increase and realize it's the first increase since 2008... also the salary is on the low end for comparable responsibility in the private sector.
