As a police officer, I’ve been told I make a lot more money than a lot of people that work for the same agency. This is true for many reasons, not the least of which is that we don’t have a federal minimum wage or overtime laws on the books. Because of this, it can be hard to compare the salaries of the police officers for this city.
The Washington DC Police Department is the sixth largest police department in the country. Its officers spend a lot of time enforcing the laws of our land, fighting crime, and educating the public on what they can expect from the police forces of our county and other states. This means that it is relatively easy to compare salaries across the region. According to the FBI website, the average starting salary for a new DC policeman in 2011 was $39,836.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average salary for an entry-level officer in 2011 was 30,966. So, in other words, it was the highest paid job in the country.
According to the FBI website, the average starting salary for a new DC policeman in 2011 was 39,836.
This is almost exactly what I said earlier. So far, DC is not a region with a low starting salary, but the average salary for new DC cops has gone up a little over the last couple of years.
DC is home to some of the highest paid police officers in the country. But the average starting salary for a new DC cop is more than double the average starting salary for a new DC cop in 2011, meaning that it’s no longer the highest paid job in the country.
The recent high-profile murder of a police officer, and the investigation into his death, are two cases that have pushed the DC police officer salary to new heights. The police officer is not the only high-profile crime on the DC police officer radar.
Police officers are also paid by the hour. An average DC police officer earns $60,000 a year. That’s a lot of money, and at the same time, the salary is not the only way to prove your worth in the police officer department. The police academy is one of the most expensive programs in the country. You need to be well-trained to be able to pass the police academy and to get hired into the police department.
The academy also teaches how to write and record police reports and how to make arrests. This is vital because the police department is really a legal system and the police officer can be the best criminal defense lawyer in town. They must also perform a lot of administrative tasks like filing and responding to police reports and lawsuits.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average police officer salary in the US is about $49,000 annually. While the average police officer salary for a state is about $45,000 annually, that doesn’t take into account the various departments within a state.
