Sheriff's Department Top Brass See Pay Raises For 'Extra Duty'

Of the 37 positions listed in the revised rate schedule, extra duty costs were going up for 30, or just over three-quarters.

The Riverside County Board of Supervisors today approved changing the rates charged by the Sheriff's Department for assigning deputies to special duties.

Sheriff Stan Sniff requested a revised "extra duty" pay schedule to reflect lower and higher personnel costs borne by the department.   

Under the new service rates, the cost for a deputy assigned to work events, such as parades or festivals, or other duties outside of his or her customary assignments, will be $69.41 per hour, compared to $70.67 currently.   

According to agency documents, the charge for a sheriff's corporal will drop from $75.25 per hour to $73.91 per hour, while a court bailiff's cost will decrease from $52.56 to $51.63.   

A sergeant's rate, however, will increase from $95.37 per hour to $99.95 per hour, and a lieutenant's will rise from $75.86 per hour to $79.51 per hour.   

Of the 37 positions listed in the revised rate schedule, extra duty costs were going up for 30, or just over three-quarters.   

It was not immediately clear whether cities that contract with the department for law enforcement services would be included in the new fee schedule, which is effective Thursday. Lake Elsinore and Wildomar are contract cities.

this is not a pay raise, it is a raise in what the cities are charged for the officers on duty.
