There was some pretty important news that came out of the Killeen City Council last night. Here are the highlights from myself and Herald reporter Natalie Stewart.
- Killeen's civil service employees could see as much as an eight percent increase in their pay. City officials say it necessary to remain competitive with other area police and fire departments.
- The Killeen police department released official crime rate statistics for 2013 for the state and federal Uniform Crime Report. While the report does not track all types of crime, it is a window into the city's crime rate for the previous year.
- Not crime per-say, but a group of Killeen teens in the KPD's Explorer Program took home several awards from a state competition last weekend. It was their very time competing. Congrats KPD explorers!
