Police officers and sergeants of the Lee’s Summit Police Department are employed under a work agreement (contract) negotiated and administered by the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), Lodge #50. Membership in the FOP and Lee's Summit Police Officer's Association is not mandatory, but all employees are covered under the work agreement. The pay structure provides for compensation increases based on longevity. The current pay structure is listed below and is current as of February 2023. The present work agreement extends through February of 2025 and has incremental increases within it that become effective in February of each year. Each year the pay range will increase by approximately 4%. The officer will also receive a "step" increase for an additional year of service. Each year an officer who is not at the top of the pay scale will receive two raises, one in February and one on their anniversary date.
Police officers with POST Class A Certification/experience can make a lateral entry into the compensation plan based on years of experience.
