Hayward secures tentative agreements with Fraternal Order of Police
I am pleased to announce that the City has reached tentative agreements concerning future compensation and benefits with the Police Officer, Sergeant, and Lieutenant bargaining units represented by the Fraternal Order of Police.
As Mayor, I have always valued and prioritized our men and women in public safety. These agreements confirm my commitment to have the premier law enforcement agency in northwest Florida. Public safety will continue to remain a top priority of my administration. Police Chief Tommi Lyter, thanked me for my continued support of the City’s Police Department and said, “Mayor Hayward, I appreciate your making the Pensacola Police Department and public safety a priority. By reaching tentative agreements with the Police bargaining units we can ensure we are able to continue to provide quality police service for our community.”
I have been fortunate to have moved our City’s public safety departments forward to include always reaching agreements with all collective bargaining units throughout my tenure as Mayor. I have made many progressive and diverse advancements in the administration of our public safety departments to include appointing the City’s first African American as Chief of Police and first female Fire Chief. I am very proud of these achievements. Our City has been recognized as being one of the best places to live, work, play, and raise a family.
One of the reasons for this recognition is due to the level of public safety service offered to our citizens. It is my hope that the next administration will continue my commitment to public safety.
