    Obama Issues Plan to Give Feds 1.6 Percent Pay Raise in 2017


    President Obama issued an alternative pay plan Wednesday, setting an across-the-board increase for civilian federal employees of 1.6 percent in 2017.

    The figure includes a 1 percent base increase, and a 0.6 percent locality pay bump, matching the amount the president requested in his fiscal 2017 budget proposal. Obama issued a separate plan providing a 1.6 percent boost in monthly basic pay rates for military service members.

    Obama said he would make a decision by Nov. 30 regarding a locality pay plan. Locality pay rates vary by area.

    Journal of Criminal Justice 2001
    Who are the complaint-prone officers?  An examination of the relationship between police officers' attributes, arrest activity, assignment, and citizen's complaints about excessive force.


    Abstract
    This article identifies the characteristics of police officers (officers’ background attributes, arrest activity, and assignment) who most frequently receive complaints from citizens regarding the use of excessive force. The data for the study were obtained from a large mid-western municipal police department. The results show that arrest activity, officer age, and officer gender are most strongly related to the receipt of citizen’s complaints about
    excessive force and differentiate high-complaint officers from low-complaint officers. Implications of the findings are discussed. (c)2001 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved

    Los Angeles Times, Opinion
    One group is responsible for America’s culture of violence, and it isn’t cops, black Americans, Muslims or rednecks. It’s men.  What we don’t talk about is how the greatest predictor of violence isn’t religion, occupation or race. It’s gender.
