The East Baton Rouge Parish Metro Council has approved pay raises for officers of the Baton Rouge Police Department.

On Tuesday, the Metro Council voted for a 3% raise for the officers and voted for the department to have four deputy chiefs instead of three.

This is the first raise officers have had since 2015, when all city-parish employees got a 2% pay increase.

Following the announcement, BRPD Chief Murphy Paul said he was excited about the council's decision.
