Birmingham Police officers are gathering right now for a Fraternal Order of Police chapter meeting and while they won't let us inside our
is staked out outside the meeting to try and get a sense of how the FOP plans to fight a planned health insurance premium increase the city is proposing as part of a budget plan unwrapped this morning.
