Report: Assistant D.C. Police Chief Gets Promotion

NBC4

D.C. police have reportedly promoted an assistant chief of police to the rank of chief.

The move gives assistant chief Alfred Durham a bump in pay, to $178,000, the Washington Examiner reported. It's not clear whether he will take on any new responsibilities. Cathy Lanier is D.C.'s police chief.

The Examiner cited department payroll records.

The Examiner reported in December that Durham had received a 10 percent pay raise that's intended for officers who serve 20 continuous years with the department. Durham has been with the department for more than 20 years, but his service was not continuous.

Payroll records show Durham was stripped of the "longevity" pay raise, then promoted. The net result is that his salary remains the same.
