As a former Ewing Police Officer I know they earn their money. When I started in 1972 we were paid $6240.OO. I now live in Colorado, for the past 30 years. Look at the tax rate there, housing cost and the cost of living. And also look how the area has changed. The increased crime rate. Yes they earn their money and need it to live.
