Pay Our Police
The Richmond Police Department is severely understaffed, which is dangerous for officers as well as the citizens they protect. A new pay scale was developed in order to help retain officers, who are leaving in droves for higher paying departments. However, the mayor refuses to give the new scale the consideration it deserves. Let our mayor know you do NOT feel safe when only 5 officers are on patrol at a time. Sign the petition below and urge him to adopt the pay scale, both for your safety and the safety of the brave policemen who serve us.
