  • Benefits and Salary

    Can someone please explain the salary that a potential police officer gets while in the Academy? I visited the NYPD Recruit site and saw that while in the academy one's salary is $40,361 but then that amount rises to $43,062 - the same thing occurs at every other point along the time-line provided by the illustration.

    It's pretty self explanatory. The reason it is listed as 43,062 is that 40,361 is the base pay, with the extra 2K being longevity pay, uniform allowance, etc. It does not include overtime.

      Also, while in the academy do you "work" holidays?

        The Recruit pay doesn't include longevity pay. Longevity pay is given at 5 year increments I believe. When someone asks members to explain their issue, it's pretty impolite to say, "It's pretty self explanatory" ya know?

          I didn't mean it like that.

          Anyways, the higher paycheck is supposed to be what you get including bonuses, with the lower one being base.

            Lol I wonder why they didn't have the fancy badge swingy thing graphic when the starting salary was $25k.

              Liny,

              Are those bonuses, while in the academy, perhaps what I mentioned in my previous post:

              Having your shift at night & working holidays?

                  Since I believe the Academy doesn't cancel during Holidays, then yes, probably a no on the night, since they probably don't have classes then.

                  The majority of it is probably to supplement supplies purchased such as the Uniform allowance and anything else you need during the Academy. I could be wrong though.

                    You don't go to the academy on holidays or weekends, thats why some guys miss it lol. During the gigantic academy classes in the past they had different squads, some recruits did day tours, some did 4xMidnights.

                      Thanks for the info....

                      I remember being told it was either from 7-3 (day) or 4-12 (night). Has that changed?

                        You don't get night diff if you do 4-midnights in the academy. You get two holiday checks a year once you are out of the academy.

                          2 holiday checks a year? You mean you're only allowed or can only work up to two holidays in 12 month period?

                            2 checks a year. its extra pay they give you two times a year. when i was in the academy from july-january we got off christmas day and thanksgiving but you use your own time for it. so those 10 vacation days you get or the chart day u get once a month are used then. every other mon-fri you are working.

                              No. It takes all the holidays in the first half of the month and it gets put on one paycheck. And during the Academy we got Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day off if I remember correctly. You had to use up a vacation/chart day though.
