BOSTON (CBS) – Boston Mayor Marty Walsh says the city’s police commissioner deserves a pay raise.

When William Evans took the job as Boston Police Commissioner he actually took a pay cut of more than ten percent.

Walsh told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 Wednesday that needs to change.

“My commissioner should be compensated fairly in the city of Boston. I believe he’s eighth in the country and he has one of the largest police forces to manage in the country,” Walsh said.  “He’s done a great job.”

The commissioner’s current salary is around $174,000 a year.

Walsh would like to raise that to $200,000, so he’s filed an ordinance with the City Council.

Evans has been on the force since 1980.

According to the Boston Globe, Evans was paid almost $193,000 in 2012 as superintendent, but as commissioner he’s no longer eligible for extra money such as overtime, unused vacation or the Quinn Bill supplement for officers with college degrees.
