We often ask for the police salary for the police officer, the officers themselves, or the officers in the police department. In the case of a police officer, you have to take the police department’s salary. Our salaries are pretty steep, and we have gotten a lot of calls from department officers. But there is one thing that we do as police officers: We don’t believe in self-assessment.
Well, that’s easy to say. The police department is a government entity, and government employees are required to take a salary. That’s because government employees serve in the best way they can and they have to serve their departments. It makes sense when you think about it, but it’s still not a comfortable feeling.
Not to say that the police don’t have their own set of frustrations to deal with. We have also received a pretty severe backlash from our department over our use of the “Horseshit” word. The problem is that this word is actually quite popular at the moment and is used as a term of endearment for those that are extremely arrogant.
How is it perceived? If you say, “People make a pretty decent salary,” they’re actually making a pretty decent salary. They don’t have to worry about the amount of money they earn because they are supposed to be paid like professionals.
The problem is that the use of the term “horseshit” has become associated with the stereotypical image of the arrogant male, which is often made more of in hip-hop than in other types of media. Because of this, a lot of people associate the word with a particular type of male that is extremely arrogant. Our department is the opposite, meaning that it is a menial job.
We are a police department that can actually make an honest living. We are the police department that works every day without overtime. We actually work on our days off, in our time off, and in between shifts. Not only that, but we are the only police department in Houston that has a retirement plan.
Well, I guess that makes us sort of an odd case. A lot of people associate the word with a certain type of male that is extremely arrogant. Our department is the opposite, meaning that it is a menial job.
It’s also the only police department in Houston that has a 401K. And since we’re a police department, it’s the only one that includes a defined retirement plan. This is a big deal for us because it means our department can actually make an honest living without needing to work overtime or any overtime. While there is no mandatory overtime in the Houston police department, there is very definitely an expectation that you will make more money on less overtime than you would in a civilian job.
A much more common misconception is that police officers are paid overtime. This is definitely not the case. If we are to compare police officers’ salaries to other jobs, our police officers’ salaries are actually much lower than those of doctors, attorneys, and other professions that have to be paid overtime. The average police officer makes $25,000 a year on an hourly pay schedule, about $3,000 less than a doctor, and about $4,000 less than an attorney.
It’s important to note that the majority of police officers are “off-duty” during the year they are on duty, so they may have to work overtime. There are a number of different schedules that can be found on the internet that can cover their shifts. Some require them to be in uniform, others don’t.
