City has deal with police officers union

October 13, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
Los Angeles city officials have reached a tentative contract agreement with the Los Angeles Police Protective League.Details of the proposal had not been released early Tuesday afternoon, but City Council President Eric Garcetti said it would save the cash-strapped city between $50 million to $100 million.

Garcetti did not immediately say whether the deal includes mandatory furloughs, but stressed that the mayor and council members have been opposed to furloughs for police officers.

The City Council had also been considering a police hiring freeze, with council committees split on the proposal, and the mayor also threatening to veto such decision.

The union plans to present the proposal to its members for ratification within the next few weeks.
