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

You could take the top 25% of CSP brass and recycle them and the whole outfit would run a lot smoother. The figureheads don't do anything. You could pay 2-3 troopers for one of those raises and the troopers actually do have an effect on crime.
