AC cops take pay cuts to rehire 17 from layoff

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - November 24, 2010

The police union voted Tuesday to take $410 pay cuts each, which would bring the force back to 300 officers.

The city is adding $1 million to the police budget for next year to help cover the officers' salaries.

Both sides are considering further union givebacks that could result in another 30 laid-off officers coming back to work.

All told, 60 police officers were let go this year for budgetary reasons.
