Monrovia Police Compensation Initiative (2008)
|Not on Ballot|
| This measure did not or |
will not appear on a ballot
A Police Compensation Initiative would have been on the November 4, 2008 ballot in Monrovia, California if the Monrovia Police Officers Association (MPOA) collects enough signatures. If signatures are turned in, they will be checked by the Los Angeles County election officials.
The measure would mandate that Monrovia pay police officers an average of the salaries of other San Gabriel Valley police departments. Along with billboards at the city limits paid for by the MPOA that say, "You're Approaching Monrovia. Higher Violent Crime. Fewer Officers Patrolling. Thank the City Manager and City Council," the initiative appears to be part of a contract negotiating effort with the city on the part of the MPOA.
The MPOA has also filed wording on another initiative, the Monrovia City Official Compensation Initiative (2008).
