MEDFORD, Ore.- The City of Medford agrees to a new 3-year contract with the Medford Police Officer Association.

Bonnie Barasch, Director of Human Resources for the City of Medford, says the city and the Medford Police Officer Association agreed upon an 8% salary increase for 2024, a 5% increase in 2025, and a 4% increase in 2026.
