You take home about half of that. And if I was one of the $800,000 cops of which may be $600, 000 was the paid for sick time etc. and he took home $300,000 after taxes , I would trade that all in for 20% more pension with a 3% cola. So with SJPD salary being more , the pension percentage being higher and cola ( NY has a joke COLA 0-3% of first $18,000) how can you say that NCPD has better beni's. I know how , just keep spinning reality
Look up the actual payments, both for Nassau Cops and San Jose police, (both are available online) Nassau cops are paid more.

just because the MEDIAN..(meaning middle) says 85k..that is including a whole lot of teenagers flipping hambergers at wendy's while they are living low cost at moms
The median wage includes hamburger flipper but it also includes bank exec's, Wall street and others that make in the millions and it is well below $85K, where did you get $85K as the mean?

People get by living at home longer, working off 2 incomes and saving and investing for a larger down payments.

He tried to equate median wage, with median household income. Median household income is in the low 90's in Nassau and in the 80's in Suffolk.

I am not talking about end of career payments. Yearly salary. If you have a similiar site as SeethroughNY for SJPD then post it

If you have an intelligent point to make on school salaries feel free to raise a point or join one of the other threads where it is discussed. Don't be so defensive, police salaries are far from the only problem with the county.
So are you worried that someone you think you are better than makes more money or that you pay to much tax. These threads start out as to much tax , but the real truth eventually comes out. And why are you telling me not to be defensive. If you are making a point I don't agree with then defense is what you play before offense. Why do you get defensive about what I post. That comment makes no sense

http://www.sanjoseca.gov/salary/

They also list the compensation for retiring officers, which seethroughNY does not list.

26 Nassau officers made over $200,000 last year (without including retirement compensation packages). 6 San Jose officers made over $200,000 (without including retirement compensation packages), only 1 of those 6 made it over without the category of other compensation. Not sure what that entails or if that other compensation is also included in the seethroughny figures.

Couldn't find the so called web site with SJPD pay but found one that reported this

Home > New Jersey Real-Time News > Statehouse
N.J. police salaries rank highest in nation with median pay of $90,672

But NCPD is from planet Mars. Areas with high cost of living have cops making similiar salaries all over . Get out of the bubble. Even US Park PD a govt job makes good money and not very dangerous in NY. DC is another story.

To take it a little further, not including retirement payouts 16 officers in San Jose made $175,000 or more last year, that compares to 174 Nassau officers making $175,000 or more last year without including retirement payouts.

Household salary is multiple incomes, it would be meaningful if you could compare to police but there is no information. Single wage earner salaries should be the comnparison.

Median full time wage earners is probably the most apt comparison. Its broken down by both male and female. For Nassau its Males $65,663, Females $49,749
