I think of myself as a legal drug dealer. Feeding your need for speed :).

Much respect for any and all law enforcement.

+100,000 overpaid jobs, good benefits.

Overpaid? I don't think so considering some of the people I know in sales that make a rediculous amount of money and also a lot of Government workers I work with.

I've been trying to become CHP (California Highway Patrol) for the past couple years because of the retirement they offer, 3% for every year served up to 30 years. I can live with making $70k-ish a year after retiring.

Of course I'm trying at the wrong time where everyone is trying to get into these "type" of jobs, where you don't need schooling. I'm over it now, honestly don't think I can handle it anyways, both mentally and physically.

Overpaid ?? Glad you can put a price tag on public safety. Let me throw some knowledge your way.

On average, you pay roughly $500 a year for a full-time police department that is available to every person who lives or travels through the municipality 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. And those numbers are NJ (one of the most expensive property taxed states in the US). Which leads me to believe that other states avg is less than that.

It is highly doubtful that one wonders what the responding officer's salary is when calling 911. People who call the police are concerned with whatever is occurring in their life at that moment. They don't care how much we make, just as long as we show up when they call, no matter the reason.

Just like you, we pay taxes. We don't get tax breaks or incentives, like the wealthy. Most of our families, in fact, are two-income households, same as the majority of American families. Truth is, most starting salaries are in the low-to-mid 30s, and some even lower. Eventually, an officer works his or her way up the pay scale. This takes time. No officer makes $100,000 right out of the academy.

We work holidays, weekends, nights, swing shifts, snowstorms, hurricanes, floods... you name it. My department is on the job 24/7 so that you can get a restful night's sleep. If we do our jobs the way we were trained, we're still called derogatory names. If we are too kind, we're lazy. If we can't solve your problem, we're incompetent. We are expected to be doctors, lawyers, marriage counselors, parents to unparented children, teachers, mechanics, plumbers, veterinarians, wildlife experts...the one and only cure-all, really, to any problem a community has.

I'm not looking for recognition. That's not the point. I ave chosen to deal with the element in society nobody else wants to. Sometimes we leave for work, say goodbye to our families, just like you do before work  and privately wonder if this will be our last shift. Why do I deserve the compensation I  get? Because I earned it.

You have a nice day.

Just read it. Good post Rimola and thank you for your service.

Great post.  I'm an orthopedic surgeon and we always took good care of cops that got hurt trying to keep guys like me safe.  An almost thankless job that puts your life at stake every day.  How much is your own life worth to you, enshiu?  These "overpaid" guys are the ones that keep you safe behind whatever computer you hide behind.  

I get the comment "you're overpaid" a lot too.  Next time your ankle is in 10,000 pieces, you'll be thankful that you got someone who went through 10+ years of schooling after college and spent their entire twenties inside of a library or a hospital while incurring $200k-$300k of debt.  How much is your (insert body part here) worth to you?
