Alright, i am not going to lie i have thought about becoming a cop in the past( now i am old and over it). Which city do you think it would offer the best "package" for an officer. That being:
Cheap cost of living
Higher Salary
Not too violent but not to dull
Respect( with so many controversies it would be good to be a cop where they wouldn't crucify you)

Austin probably fits your criteria the best.

None. There is no good city for a cop. I really suggest a different line of work.

Did you read my post? I am not looking into becoming an officer, just curious as to where one would chose to be one.

I would venture the NYPD. It has the reputation and some pretty great benefits. Over the course of five and a half years the base salary is raised each six months past year one from 43K to 78K for all basic patrol officers.

NYPD Recruit

I know someone who is a cop in Lincoln Maine, does next to nothing unless a motorist hits a deer or a moose, prior to that he had been a cop in Camden NJ, said if he did not respond to at least one shooting during his shift he wasn't earning his pay.

Boise, Salt Lake City, Eugene, Spokane, or Des Moines.

I don't care what anyone says, I wouldn't be a cop in a city with a high black population. Not worth it.
