      Rookie Cop, Prison Guard Salaries to be Increased


      The Treasury on Monday signed an agreement to increase the salaries of rookie police officers and prison guards by NIS 2,000. Beginning officers and guards will now receive NIS 7,150 monthly, instead of NIS 4,800. The agreement encompasses some 6,000 officers who are within the first three years of service.

      The agreement, signed by the Treasury and the Public Security Ministry, also commits the government to search for ways to increase the salaries of veteran officers.
