This study provides information on the contractual agreements of 14 of the16 police departments
in Onondaga County. The study was conducted by the Community Benchmarks Program (CBP)
at The Maxwell School of Syracuse University.
Information for this study was obtained from the bargaining unit contracts negotiated by
representatives of the police and sheriff’s departments with the governing bodies of their
respective municipalities or the county. The New York State and Local Police and Fire
Retirement System and the 1999 New York Municipal Reference Guide were also used as source material. This report looks at 14 of the 16 contracts in Onondaga County excluding the state
police. Data were collected in 2001. The two departments not included do not have union
representation. They are the part-time departments in the villages of Jordan and Marcellus. A comparative analysis of salary and benefits was conducted.
