The Massachusetts Board of Higher Education has a page on their website dedicated specifically to the Police Career Incentive Pay Program, otherwise known as the Quinn Bill. There are several quick links to catgories such as news, the Quinn Bill Statute, certification process, quinn bill forms, and eligible institutions.potatochip said:Hey there...does anyone know if there is a list of all of the Cities and Towns that currently receive Quinn Bill payments? We are getting down and dirty in contract negotiations and this list would be really helpful.
A Master's or law degree used to net you 30% under the original Quinn Bill. The percentages were eventually dropped, but the "30 percenters" were grandfathered, and kept/keep that rate until retirement. When I first started, there were quite a few 30% people, but it's now down to a handful.jimbo said:guy at in-service said Plymouth P D gets 30% , not 25%, for Masters degree
My union doesn't release any details to the MPA, so we're never in that book. For whatever reasons, we've always guarded the details of our contract like it was the secret formula to Coke Classic, or something.jimbo said:Any info on the pay scale/benefits comparison book of all Mass Police Assn. agencies ? Curious to see what other officers are making and getting for benefits..
