The Bossier Parish Police Jury voted down a proposed raise by a vote of 9-2 yesterday.
The role of police juror is supposed to be part time. Police jurors make about $14,400 per year from the parish. The last time police jurors received a raise was in 1999; and some police jurors thought it time they get one, especially since they have no expense accounts and cost-of-living adjustments.
The amount proposed was about $4,800 more per year, or about a 30 percent raise.
