    Nice to see recruiters using this site to touch base with applicants. Good luck, I don't have 18 months yet.

      Thanks AJ. I'm trying to use it for more than "cold calling" too if you know anyone interested in the area or that has questions. I like the interaction that forums provide.

            Outside of Seattle proper, and still well within driving distance of Tukwila, you can get a lot of house for your money. With the starting salary that Tukwila offers you could live a pretty good life and do well for you and for your family. Obviously no one is going to get rich being a cop, but as far as I'm concerned the PNW (outside of Seattle) is the best kept secret in the country for good living.

                I've noticed that the area seems to be among the highest paying in the country. My assumption was that it had something to do with cost of living. However, I could be wrong because I work in a wealthy area but make less than my peers.

                  The actual city of Seattle is absurd. Other areas like Redmond, Mercer Island/Medina, Bellevue, etc. are also asinine as far as real estate goes. But Tacoma, Bonney Lake, Fife, Buckley, etc. are all affordable cities. A friend of mine just bought a brand new, 3,000sq. foot house on 14 acres in Buckley for $350,000. It's maybe 30 miles from Tukwila. Another friend bought a rather nice, older 1,800sq foot house in Tacoma for $160,000. Lots of options around the area if you look south of Tukwila rather than north.

                    Im a fed just up the road but I work with a lot of state/local guys (not Tukwila). I'm not applying to the position, but I know others who are. What I know and see about the state LE system that I consider a drawback is that once you retire, you get no health insurance. Most other states that I've seen are not like that. That caveat saves the state system a lot of money by not paying retiree health costs, which are generally high. The state/local guys around this area do make well. Most King County Deputies I know generally make around $100k by the end of the year. The state LE retirement system is also pretty generous too. Considering they don't pay for health insurance, they probably should be.

                      I made a long post that didn't take. Retiree health insurance was stolen from me a few years ago anyway so no loss there. I am concerned about starting over in a new system though. I'm not getting any younger.

                          Heck I'll be fishing from my walker if I live that long.

                          Clarification on the schedule? 3x12 then 4x12? So guaranteed 4 hrs ot per check?

                            It's not cheap but it's not outrageous either. If you're not looking at living in downtown Seattle you can afford a good sized house and our pay is commensurate with the cost of living. It's not San Francisco prices but it's not Wyoming either.
