New Contract For Hanover Police Service

The Hanover Police Services Board and the Hanover Police Association have reached an agreement on a three-year contract covering uniform and civilian members of the Hanover Police Service.

The agreement includes wage adjustments totaling six-percent over the life of the deal as well as other changes to the contract language comparable with other police services of similar size.
