I would venture to say that most of the chiefs in Indiana make less than the national average. Most probably make significantly less. You gotta compare apples to apples.
    already did that and within my own County, just wanted the National average.

    He's a public employee - shouldn't take too much digging to find it.

    The AVERAGE salary will vary just like the HUGE variance in the pay of police throughout the U.S. Some make $7 per hour, while others earn $70 per hour. There are approximately 15,000 police/sheriff's departments inthe United States. Even though we always think BIG like LAPD, NYPD, etc, an overwhelming vast majority of police/sheriff's departments are VERY small, with 15 or less officers (who on average make less than $25K per year). I'm guessing you could count the number of police chiefs in states like Nebraska making 100K or more on one hand. Now if we are talking big city (NYC, LA, SFO, CHI, MIA, etc.) or California chief's of police, then you will see those $100K salaries...
