CCSD police officers to receive big raise under new agreement

The average salaries of Clark County School District Police Department personnel as well as health insurance contributions will rise under a two-year agreement unanimously approved Thursday by the district’s Board of School Trustees.

A new 2023-2025 agreement between the district and the Police Officers Association of the Clark County School District, includes a 16 percent average pay increase and a 5 percent increase in health insurance payments.

The fiscal impact of the new agreement is estimated to cost about $5 million, according to information detailed at Thursday’s meeting.

An increase in health insurance contributions for school police will go into effect on July 1, according to the district.

The pact, approved 7-0 by trustees, also outlines a detailed process for the promotion of police officers to the rank of sergeant.

The new agreement will run through June 2025.
