You people are unreal. First, show me the proof that cops in GC make $75 K a year. Not happening. Also, if you get a ticket, pay it. Try adhering to the rules and the laws. I've never gotten a ticket. Perhaps your driving sucks. Give the cops a break. $75 K. LMAO

How about someone request a ride around with them on a weekend (if you want a lot of action) and see if what they deal with is worth 75k a year? Report your experience here and let us converse about them then.

Does not an administrator at a high school in East St.Louis have a less chance of (personal)danger but make a lot more than that?

I understand your frustration with the ticket, but I don't think the whole force deserves to be unappreciated over it.

Hmmm, if you open the link dirt bag, you will see the average officer makes around $58,000. The upper five officers including the chief make over 70K. Not bad for putting your life on the line every day. Pretty fair for going into places like KP, bars, etc... where they break up fights between morons like you. Keep in mind too that they buy their own weapon and pay their own uniform costs.

This link does nothing more than prove the little ninja to be a mis-informed sh** disturber and a smart mouth like you GoodOne to be an idiot. Stay in ESL. Sounds like you belong there.

I said they make 75k a yr, not salary... if you add in there "performance bonuses" (for writing tickets)... the average amount of overtime they all collect... yes, u will find they do make round 75k a yr... plus who said anything about the "average officer" where do you think the orders for these traffic stings come from?... those upper 5 officers

... and job related expenses are tax deductible, in which you are in that tax bracket 25-28%, you are paying a decent amount of taxes, so I imagine you get most of those expenses back.

In addition... those figures are from 2 yrs ago... add 3% more a yr 56k a yr becomes very close to 60K

... plus add all the under the table deals w the drug dealers etc.......... lol, this one was a joke :)

and u are a nieve dumba55... call the state police dept and ask them if they have a "quota"...

see what they tell you...

hint---the answer isn't no, it changes every year, but, it will go something like this... "no sir, we dont have a quota, we have a quality insurance performance incentive"

Im a joke because im educated on things that you cant learn talking w you coworkers on the site, or sitting in a lawn chair in the back yard?

go drink another beer you gullible Hoosier retard

Well if you ever read the news paper when there pay comes out in it. You will see the chief makes about 100 thou. Gagage makes about 90. He don't do crap but flirt with girls. And I no for sure. The swat makes about 80 thou. Just read the paper. Why do they need 3 police cars to pull someone over for a seat belt ticket.. If they need back up for everything they do . They need two police officers in just one car. Not 3 cars showing up. And you say they have a hard job. Then why do they sit in church parking lots for hours. Give me a break . They wouldn't no what a hard job is

They are given a couple of uniforms. And then must BUY the next ones as the old wear out. Just like the army pays 25k for a toilet seat these guys have to pay out the sore end for the regulation mag light, shoes, and vest.
They are supposed to have another officer if they believe there is ANY chance of danger. Thats often why you see 2 cars at the same stop.
Most of the time you see them in a parking lot, they're watch for fools that run stop signs and filling out the reports at the same time.
Give them a break

well all im saying is that i no for a fact that they make real good money. and they think that just cause they have a badge they can get by breaking the law.and no one else can. give me a few more months to get done what im doing. and watch channel 2 news. and we will see cops drinking and driving,running stop signs,not useing turn signals,wasting city money sitting at other womens houses and work places flirting with married women. lets see them LIE out of it when they see the tape. its going to be so funny watching the mayor explain this on the news. im just tired of my tax money paying for them to have fun. and making there own laws.

If all that is true, and it very well could be, it should be exposed to the taxpayers.
