Norwalk Police, city, reach tentative contract agreement

After 15 months of working without one, Norwalk Police may soon have a new four-year contract.

On Saturday morning the president of the police union, the Norwalk Police Chief and Mayor Alex Knopp held a news conference to announce a tentative agreement between the city and the union.

Both sides could not go into much detail because the agreement must still be approved by the union membership and the city council. However, they say the tentative agreement includes the entire package, from benefits to wages.

The contract will go to the union members for review on Thursday.
