WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- City officials and the police union have agreed to a six-year contract that includes pay increases, completely-paid health insurance for some officers and random drug testing, according to a story on lohud.com.

The contract, which is retroactive to July 1, 2012, calls for 2 percent pay raises for each of the first four years, a 2.25 percent raise in the fifth year and 2.5 percent raise in the sixth year, according to the lohud.com story.

The deal is the longest contract between White Plains and any of its labor unions in at least three decades, according to the lohud.com story.

The city will continue to cover all health insurance costs for the 45 officers hired before 1995 still on active duty, according to the lohud.com story. New police officers will be required to pay 15 percent of their health insurance throughout their careers and after they retire, according to the lohud.com story.
