An arbitration decision gives police a 4.5 percent raise spread over four years, as well as a 401(k) plan for new officers

WEST HAVEN, Conn. — The City Council wants more information before deciding whether to act on the recent police arbitration award.
The arbitration decision gives police a 4.5 percent raise spread over four years, and switches new hires to a 401(k) plan instead of the existing defined pension plan. The union believes the pension switch is a major flaw in the award.
