      The salary range in the job posting is very attractive. My question would be how long does it take to reach top pay and what is the process to achieve top pay.

          You must have 2 years or more of full time, sworn service as a police officer. Your years of service also provide an additional financial incentive. If you are hired by an agency in North Carolina, your years of training will be sent to North Carolina training and standards to challenge your certification. You will have anywhere from 150 to 300 hours of classes that you will have to attend to complete your certification, but most agencies will send you while you are on duty, and that will be part of your schedule for that week.

        Annual merit based raises, plus raise after 2 years, raise after 4 years, raise after another 4 years. You need Several classes like SFST, CIT, and ICS 300 to get promotion. You get a take home car within 25 air miles when you finish field training.

          So how many years is it to top pay exactly? And is it guaranteed? What is the pension? And how much does the city cover toward medical and do you keep medical when you retire?

          Eight (8) years until top pay as a Master Police Officer. You would have received three (3) compounded 5% raises plus annual merit-based raises at that point as well. There is a pension after 30 years. Effective July 1, 2020 the Town does not supplement medical insurance upon retirement, but supplements it during your employment. The link for the benefits is https://www.apexnc.org/163/Employee-Benefits

        The job announcement lists a salary range of 50-88k. Are you making 88k in 8 years? If so, that is the best salary deal I am aware of in NC.

        Also regarding, that 8 years to top pay, is that from the starting pay of 50 listed in the job announcement, or is that from a higher initial pay?

        Thanks

          Out of the eleven local departments I am monitoring, Apex now has the largest starting salary of all of them. The starting salary for someone directly out of BLET with no other experience is now a minimum of $50,822. There are additional incentives which include college (2.5% / 5%), military service (2.5%), and prior law enforcement in or out of state (10%-20%). Once you are hired, there is an additional 2.5% if you can read and write in a second language other than English.

        Does North Carolina recognize federal academy training? If so is there a waiver process or anything like that?

          Federal time MAY be considered, but thats above my pay grade to determine the "may". if you want you can email me with more info and we can talk about it.
