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.
