Salaries

In 2011, 87 fire and police personnel made more than $100,000 in compensation, totaling more than $11 million, more than two-thirds of the city's public safety employees. Overtime costs are one of the leading contributors to the high annual compensations.[2] Payroll costs will increase by $1.6 million in 2012-13, of which $1.1 million is attributed to the contract with the Upland Police Association. The rest is in pension costs.[3]

Firefighters work a 53-hour work week before any overtime, and most firefighters must work 24 to 48 extra hours per month to provide the required `constant staffing' to keep the emergency units staffed 24 hours, seven days a week. Much of the police overtime is incurred during the first 48 hours after a crime, when police work around the clock to secure leads and witnesses.[4]
