Pay cuts, 12 hour shifts for Detroit police temporarily halted

SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

A judge has stepped in and blocked the planned ten percent pay cuts and twelve hour shifts for Detroit police.  Wayne County Circuit Court Judge John Murphy issued a temporary restraining order Thursday.

Fox 2 legal analyst Charlie Langton says the order does not apply to other city workers.

"No, it does not.  Any city worker right now, if you're not a police officer, you will take a ten percent pay cut."

A hearing on the matter has been set for August 22.

Watch the video as Charlie Langton explains the judge's reasoning for issuing the order.
