Despite the city's financial troubles, San Bernardino has approved nearly $1 million in salary increases for police officers and firefighters.

The raises approved Monday are required by the city's charter. The voting process was merely symbolic.

Supporters say the pay increases keep quality employees in the city. Those opposed to the raises fear they could put further financial strain on a city that's already struggling through bankruptcy court.
