  • F.B.I vs. City Police

    I know the F.B.I gets all of the high priority cases that relate to National Security, kidnappings, ect. But besides having Jurisdiction over the whole U.S. instead of just a city or a state, what other perks does it bring. Here it says that the starting salary for an F.B.I Special Agent is $42,548 and Here it says that a Police Officer in the city of Santa Ana, CA makes $63,336-$89,820 ( without overtime ). Now, are the benifits/retirement package better through the Federal Govt. or what? You would think it would be the other way around, Fed's making more money.

    the fed's or f..b.i. have a different mission from city police, sheriff or state police, they focuss on a specific number of federal laws they can arrest on.

    but have no power to enforce any state law's un less given the power
    bytheir local sheriff or state police.

    the fbi are educated detective type, and not street cop's or street smart,
    and if they develop street smarts...it takes a while

      Thanks for the info. I was mainly focusing on the salary fact though.

        The thing you have to consider when looking at salary for feds (1811) is LEAP and locality pay, these can nearly double the base salary depending on the location. Local guys get what we get.

          As far as I know, Feds are usually paid more. Depending on the agency. In average they will be making closer to 50-55k a year starting or within the first couple years. This is due to the uncontrollable overtime they are paid. I can

              From the agent's I know...

              ...they prefer a degree, be it Masters or Bachelors in fields other than Criminal Justice.

                Hey, FWIW, you can buy back 4 years of your military time if you go to a CalPers dept, since you mentioned Santa Ana, arguably one of the best departments in the state. They get about as much OT as they want and are guaranteed a weekend day off, even rookies.
