Amid crunch, chief gets a raise LHC

October 16, 1991

Although Baltimore County workers received no across-the-board pay increases this year, Police Chief Cornelius J. Behan got a raise.

Executive Roger B. Hayden yesterday said Behan received a $13,000 increase Sept. 11, retroactive to July 1.

Hayden said he approved the raise so that Behan's salary

would match that of Fire Chief Elwood H. Banister, who is paid $83,129 a year.

Behan, the longest-tenured department head in the county, was making $70,304 before the raise.

Behan has been the county's police chief since 1977. Banister became fire chief in January.
