I dont know about 240k, but a detective or CHP officer can break well into six figures with a little overtime and some 'security duty'.

My Uncle, LA county sheriff, drives an E class and owns a 3000 sq. foot home in orange county. His wife only has token jobs (hair salon, tupperware etc.). I have no idea what he makes, but he can retire at 55 and count on similar income. Nice life.

Of course, he also had a guy put a bullet in his chest (trauma plate saved him) so be careful what you wish for.

Nassau police start at around 40-50K usually make it to over 100K, have great benefis and can retire at 1/2 pay on 20 years (41 for someone who starts at 21). Seems like a decent ER path if you make it. My uncle was nypd and was shot in a bank robbery. Was parayzed for a few years, then died.

Pointing out why police, soldiers, firemen, etc... deserve to receive their pensions. They risk their lives to protect us.

Some do. Many do not. In each category there are those who merely sit on their asses waiting for that fat pension. Not all of course,
but still a very large number. You take a cop in a smallish town or rural county for example. Very soft job.

They also don't get anywhere near the same compensation. There is a reason L.A. and N.Y. pay so well. Now if you want to talk about criminally high salaries, look no further than the head of the teamsters union that ran the closed shop at the UPS load/unload center I worked at. Come election time, they would hand me a "voter guide" as I left the center floor. Only one candidate per posts. Hmmmm.....

Laurence,
On the contrary, NYCity Police and Fire make a fraction of the Nassau and Suffolk Police.
The NYPD have a much more difficult job than Nassau and Suffolk.
In most cases this is a country club out here.

I don't know about that. It seems Sheriff Andy Taylor had a tough job having to deal with Barney, Gomer, Guber, Loyd, Otis and of course Ernest T.

That's one of the reasons Nassau taxes are so freakin high. I don't see how anyone with less than $3 million, could ER and continue to live there.
I'm happy to say I don't.

Hmm, well, I can tell you one thing, if I was a cop in NY city, I'd be looking to move then!

Yup. Town of Hempstead is the only place I know of where well paid workers come to your house to collect garbage 3x a week. Then people wonder why their taxes are high.

Amazing that Town of Hempstead is in Nassau County.
No problem with Civil Servants getting a Pension.
It's just in Nassau County they make more than the people they serve.
