CHARLESTON, WV - Senator Douglas Facemire (D-Braxton) says pay raises for non-uniformed State Police employees are long overdue. SB 627 would increase the State Police forensic lab tech salary $10,000 per year and the salary of civilian employees by $4,000 per year.
Senator Facemire, a co-sponsor of the bill, says the employees addressed in SB 627 play an important role within the State Police and are a very dedicated workforce. He says he wants them to know they are appreciated and says it’s time to do the right thing.
SB 627 is being considered in the Senate Finance Committee. Senator Facemire is Vice-Chair of Finance.
