  • Is this true?

    I heard the average life expectancy for a male police officer is like 50-55 years old?

    I heard that if you work third shift most your carreer it goes down like 5 years...

    One of my fellow officers told me this... what do you think?

    I think that's a tad exaggerated. I know PLENTY of cops that made it way past that.

      I never listen to statistics like this. No matter how precise it may be. I'm going to try to live as healthy/safe as possible, if I die, I die, won't bother me much.

        Now, according to the RCMP, modern police officer are expected to live a couple years longer. On average police officers take better care of themselves than the public and as a group we have been medically screened before hiring.

          50-55 ?? Whoa, I'm on borrowed time!

          The New York State retirement system has an actuarial table for police and fire retirees at http://www.cs.state.ny.us/ebd/ebdonl...ret_sept04.cfm

          Looks like the bean counters expect me to live about 20 more years.

            I have no idea, but maybe its something like this.

            You take the age of all Police Officers when they die..and get your average of 55 or whatever. But you have to think, more LE officers die young from unnatural causes ie. shot, car wrecks, etc. Therefore you have some P.O's dying in their 20's and 30's that bring the average life expectancy down

            Maybe that is how they get that #, maybe not
