  • Salary Q

    I noticed on the AZ DPS website they mention the salary included perfomance pay. Could someone explain this concept to me?

    If I recall correctly, if DPS makes certain "goals" per year, all sworn personnel receive a "performance" bonus. I think it's 2.5%. Something like that.


    If DPS does not make the "goal" we don't get the performance pay. At least that's how I remember it being explained to me.

    It may be all personnel but I'm not sure.

      What exactly are those goals? Does the DPS have Quotas for issuing citations?

        Nope, no quotas at all. I've had weeks where I've written 40 cites and weeks where I've written only 15 cites, and no one's ever batted an eye.

          I can't remember what they were. It doesn't have anything to do with the amount of tickets or stops we make, I can assure you that. I'll try to remember to ask my Sgt. Maybe she'll remember.

            If I may offer an uninformed guess, I'd bet it has to do with reducing the number of crashes during certain time periods. I know the Oregon State Police measures their department success (in part) by the number of crashes over holiday weekends compared with previous years.
