    If you include the Fair Value of their retirement guaranteed benefits, the salary would be multiplied by 1.6; so a starting salary of around $140K. Not bad for someone who spends most of their time guarding politicians and showing up after the crime (and ticketing bicyclists).

    It is a constant amazement to me that people think that paying police well is somehow offensive, and that they should absolutely not be paid enough to, you know, live comfortably in the city that they are being hired to risk their lives to protect.

    If it’s such a cushy gig, Captain, why aren’t you going for it?

    SFPD don’t live in SF. They don’t like it here and they don’t like us. The live in places like Santa Rosa and Petaluma. The shouldn’t be making that much money. In fact they shouldn’t be recruiting. We need less cops not more and we need to pay them less.

    This is amazing actuallty…even the best educated grads don’t typically have such salary …and no wonder it bodes arrogance for the police dept.
