Campus Police Contract
The University and the Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge #113, have reached an agreement that successfully concludes several months' contract
negotiations, according to a joint announcement Tuesday.
The terms of the agreement, which applies to the police officers, corporals, and detectives in the Division of Public Safety, have not been disclosed.
It will be in effect through July 31, 1999.
Director of Police Operations Maureen S. Rush said the Division is pleased with the conclusion and "particularly pleased that the Division of Public
Safety continued to serve the campus community at a high level during the course of these negotiations."
FOP President Hugh McBreen said the FOP negotiating committee "did a fine job in getting the best possible agreement for its members. All parties
will continue to look at other areas of mutual concern, but we're pleased with the settlement we've reached with Penn."
