  • What's your salary?

    As an off-shoot of the "why do people say cops are poor" thread, what's your salary? If you don't mind, could you post your state, years in LE, rank, and salary? I think it would be a great asset to those who are considering a career in LE and allow for comparison between other LEO's. Thanks!

    First class patrolman in my department makes $42,500. That's a 3rd year officer. It's excellent pay for the size of city we work in as well.
    Why are there so many babies on O.com? Creole, you and your buddy JPSO Recruit help me out on this one....

              This profession is not for people looking for positive reinforcement from the public. Very often it can be a thankless job and you can't desire accolades, because those are not usually forthcoming. Just do your job to the best of your ability and live with the decisions you've made.

                My full time job pays 43k with a take home car,cell phone and 32 paid holidays ect. per year.

                My part time pays 9k with a take home car,fuel card,cell phone with a 13 hour work week.

                And then if you figure in all the security gigs, project hours ect. and a twenty year retirement it is not a bad deal.

                  Without OT....but base, 1st year = $43K with the county.

                  But we also don't have to pay for equipment and have reimbursement/allowances.
                  Laptop, Cellphone, fuel reimbursement for mileage on all personal vehicles, sign-ups for county vehicles = not bad at all.
                  Plus we get to flex our hours.

                        His Bio says that he a Trooper. If he was an eleven year Trooper in NJ, he'd have seen 100k already.
