Chicago police officers are set to get pay raises over the next several years. The mayor today announced a tentative agreement on a contract with the Fraternal Order of Police -- something that had been elusive for a long time. Paris Schutz has more on this afternoon's breakthrough.

"I am pleased to announce that the City of Chicago has reached a tentative agreement with the Chicago FOP on a contract for their members. We believe this is a fair and responsible agreement -- respectful of the hard work performed by the men and women of the Chicago Police Department to keep our residents safe, and respectful of Chicago's hard-working taxpayers. I want to thank President Dean Angelo and the FOP leadership for their efforts at the bargaining table and their commitment throughout this process.”
