Police take home city's biggest paychecks
Detail work, overtime put 25 over $200,000
Police have long been big earners in Boston, where a powerful union and private detail work have helped boost pay. But in 2006, the amounts were higher than in recent years. Police Lieutenant Timothy M. Kervin collected $240,183 in 2006, making him the top earner in a department in which 1,276 employees, about 41 percent of the force, made $100,000 or more.
In 2005, 1,026 employees, about 36 percent of the force, made $100,000 or more.
Big bucks, bashing hippies, AND you get to carry a gun!?!?
Where do I sign!!!?
Of course, I'm sure the Philly PD probably makes thrice these values...
