  •  Around here they get 55 grand (3+ / 0-)

    ....I don't regard that as small wages.

    I think that's the low end of the scale, too!

    Plus, to add insult to injury, leaders of the California Highway Patrol have been retiring with a premium sweetener for so-called "disability"....especially annoying since the Commander of the CHP hasn't done anything more stressful than getting chewed out by the leadership of the legislature or the Governor in YEARS, but somehow they qualify for DISABILITY?????

      $26 an hour pre tax on average- Wolfram Alpha gave me a # about the same as the US national average, but that's for all salaried officers, doesn't allow for seniority, OT.

      I made more installing vinyl siding.

        ...was what I've read in the Sacramento Bee about the STARTING pay for Sac PD officers, and that was when I lived there four years ago.  Not bad pay for somebody fresh outta cop school, maybe with a BA in Law Enforcement from Sierra College or Consumnes River....
