ALLENTOWN, Pa. — Allentown’s plan to retain veteran police officers by allowing them to collect retirement benefits while remaining on the force will cost the city $73,673 annually in increased pension payments for two decades, according to a study released Jan. 5.
The anticipated increase in the city’s contribution to its police pension fund was in line with the administration’s expectations, paving the way for City Council approval of the program during tonight’s meeting.
