City council set a date to look into raises for Lubbock's police force. In front of more than a hundred officers, the council approved an amended resolution saying they'll look into pay raises when they work on next year's budget. They'll begin crunching numbers for the city's budget at the end of the month, and Councilmember Linda DeLeon hopes officers will see a raise in pay within a few months.
