How come the city of Stuttgart doesn't up the pay of there officers to around 14-15hr..instead of working them to death and having a high turn over of help..with all the overtime they ar making 35-38k a year..14-15hr is 32-33k a year and officers would actually stay

Why not give it to the Fire Dept? They have shitty pay with high turnover rate. They start out minimum wage, cops get more than that.

The city of Stuttgart pays for the trainning of police officers & gives them cars to drive to an from work even if they don't live in stuttgart. Then when the new cops graduate they think they should have more $$ and leave. NOONE makes anyone apply for the job as fire fightewr OR cop. SO the BETTER question should be why complain about the pay for a job when you didn't have to and why take it then complain? ASk ANYONE, EVERYONE they will all tell you they deserve more $$!!

Need to get facts straight..they are no longer able to take cars home..also state of Arkansas pays for the academy all the department pays for is wage and transportation there..put your address on here and next time someone breaks into your house armed and you call for help..we will see how fast a police officer responds to put his life in danger for 10.00hr..just saying..and no I am not a Stuttgart police officer

Thats not true. That is, unless we have several police departments that I don't know about. I have seen one house in particular that never has less than two police cars parked at it. So either they spend an awful large amount of time there "on duty" or they live there and take the cars home. I've driven near the home at different times both day and night, cars are there 9 out of 10 times I drive by.

All the officers want to do is get on here and complain about their jobs. You applied for the damn job so be happy with what you make, just because you think you are "protecting the community" you think you should make more, well welcome to the real world where they don't start you out at 15 dollars an hour! You should all start at minimum wage and work your way up, get a raise when you deserve one! I mean come on where else you gonna be able to make money and drive a charger and get all the free gas you want and not have to do anything but sit on your asses!!

Why do you want to know my address? It takes way too long for some of the cops to get to calls. All I can say is come to my house and see which bullet reaches you first. Dom't worry about another Chris Baynes trial, You'll beinside before anyone gets here.

Well Mr. Citizen, I guess you have me figured out. I seem to fit neatly into the category you place me in. I'm stereotyped, characterized, standardized, classified, grouped, and always typical. I'm the “lousy cop.” Unfortunately, the reverse isn't true. I can never figure you out.

From birth you teach your children that I am the bogeyman, and then you're shocked when they identify me with my traditional enemy, the criminal. You accuse me of coddling juveniles, until I catch your kid doing something. You may take an hour for lunch, and have several coffee breaks each day, but point me out as a loafer if you see me having just one cup.

You pride yourself on your polished manners, but think nothing of interrupting my meals at noon with your troubles. You raise hell about the guy who cuts you off in traffic, but let me catch you doing the same thing and I'm picking on you. You know all the traffic laws, but never got a single ticket you deserved. You shout “foul” if you observe me driving fast enroute to an emergency call, but literally raise hell if I take more than ten seconds responding to your call.

You call it “part of the job” if someone strikes me, but it's “police brutality” if I strike back. You wouldn't think of telling your dentist how to pull a badly decayed tooth, or your doctor how to take out your appendix, but you are always willing to give me a few pointers on law enforcement. You talk to me in a manner and use language that would assure a bloody nose from anyone else, but you expect me to stand and take it without batting an eye.

You cry,“Something has to be done about all the crime!” but you can't be bothered with getting involved.

You've got no use for me at all, but, of course, it's OK if I change a tire for your wife, or deliver your baby in the back seat of my patrol car on the way to the hospital, or save your son's life with mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, or work many hours over-time to find your lost daughter.

So Mr. Citizen, you stand there on your soapbox and rant and rave about the way I do my job, calling me every name in the book, but never stop a minute to think that your property, your family, or maybe your life might depend on one thing, ME, or one of my buddies.
