Description

"The story focused on the Rochester Police Department's overtime spending, which had spiked 46 percent in five years. Reporting showed retiring officers were using overtime to inflate not only their salaries, but also their pensions. The highest earners were also the top-paid city employees, pulling down six figure salaries working the department's front desk or coordinating parades and festivals. The report also uncovered that the city lacked clear policies and oversight of police overtime pay, unlike overtime in other departments."
