    I’m trying to figure out where the $150,000 figure for ‘Boston Police Officer’ came from in your recent Salary Survey. I’ve been with the BPD for over 4 years now and haven’t even come close to that figure. Sure, a Boston Police Officer does have an opportunity to work details or overtime shifts but there are times when those shifts are ordered on Officers’ days off (e.g. Holidays, festivals, sports championship parades, etc.) when the Officer would much rather be spending time with their family. Nonetheless, the starting base salary for an Officer is in the mid-fifties and an Officer with three years will earn just under 70K a year… For that same officer to earn the 150K you report, he/she would have to work the equivalent of over 300 eight-hour road details over the course of a year which would further equate to over 40 additional hours per week. Our salary is public knowledge, so don’t get me wrong, there are Officers who have earned additional income to provide for their famili

    Our salary is public
    knowledge, so don’t get me wrong, there are Officers who have earned additional income to provide for their families, but to report it as if its
    commonplace perpetuates the animosity the media and public have for the
    hard working men and women of our fine city.
