Rockford Police Union Meeting

Rockford Police officers say the city's contract offer simply isn't good enough. The Rockford Police Union plans to look into the Winnebago County Sheriff's Department for other options. The city has offered a 2.5% annual raise, but officers say that's nothing compared to the amount the county receives.

Union members will discuss joining forces with the county. Initial feelings about the merger appear divided but this is just the beginning of negotiations.
