Do you want to learn more about why the Lubbock Professional Police Association is asking for increased pay for Lubbock Police Officers? Are you worried about violent crime and its impact on Lubbock and the police department?

If so, the Lubbock Professional Police Association wants to invite you to a Town Hall on Tuesday, June 15th. The Town Hall will take place at Lubbock Cooper Laura Bush Middle School located at 3425 118th at 6 p.m.

As has been discussed before on The Chad Hasty Show on KFYO, the Lubbock Professional Police Association is negotiating with the City of Lubbock to get Lubbock Police Officers better pay. According to the LPPA, Lubbock officers are paid 17% lower when compared to other cities.

According to the invitation, the Town Hall is meant to answer your questions and learn more about what the Lubbock Professional Police Association is doing.

LPPA has invited the community to learn more about the priorities concerning the Lubbock Police Department: violent crime and pay disparity, how it affects the Lubbock Police Department and Lubbock residents, and how the community can help. LPPA President, Josh Reid, explained that “right now, a tax hike is not needed to increase pay for officers as The City of Lubbock has the funds. But if the City does not approve the pay raises with this budget, it could require one for Lubbock residents in the near future.”
