SALISBURY, Md.- The Salisbury City Council on Monday night unanimously approved a $488,042 plan to fund the Salisbury Police Department. Police Chief Barbara Duncan said her department is understaffed.

Duncan said she wants her department to be competitive with other law enforcement departments here in the area.

"Being more competitive really protects the investment that we've already made," she said. "And it creates a situation where you have experience, where you have skills, you have knowledge that is not going to be lost anymore."

While the additional funds were approved, Councilwoman Shanie Shields said she hopes an increase in salaries can also be approved for other city employees as well.

"I understand the police are understaffed and they want to be more competitive with the other law enforcement departments," she said. "However, there should be a compromise that other employees should be able to get a raise also."
