A MESSAGE FROM THE HPOPS BOARD OF TRUSTEES
6/20/20 5:51 PM
Recently the following was posted on social media
 
“Hey, I’m hearing rumbling from officers that mayor said in a meeting that he wanted to renegotiate pension. I’m sure ya’ll are hearing it already.”
 
Upon hearing of this post the HPOPS Chairman immediately contacted  Mayor Turner. The Mayor said that “those words never came out of my mouth.” During further conversation,  it was apparent the city has no desire to renegotiate pension benefits.


We have a good relationship with the Mayor, and he has always been supportive of our police department. He stepped up and took on the task of making the City pension plans sustainable.  This support is currently evident by the funding of 5 cadet classes for next budget year, and fully funding your pension and the police department.
 
Police Officers’ have an incredibly difficult job and are constantly under considerable stress, we know that because we are current or former police officers. [More]
