Are you in Personnel for the PD. I don't think so. So you don't really know what the saving are. And since most were of high rank there is no OT to fill when they are not there. And there have been no promotions from the lower ranks to those ranks so no gain on OT there. So there goes that theory

fact the TOP BASE salary for a regular PO is 108k....barely a living wage in Nassau

it is quite DECEPTIVE to keep quoting a median salary OF COPS...and not divide it down to the difference between a regular PO and a captain or a sergeant

if I was to look at the median of all rookie cadets..the median would be 35k....
That explains this median garbage in an nutshell but real fact don't matter to this crew, only facts that they can spin

I was waiting for this, the COLA for all NY state employees is 0 to 3% depending on the inflation rate , but only on the first $18000. So the best one can increase in one year is $540 which will not happen many years at all. So that throws another spin wheel out the window

most unions public and private are the same way
and in the military now you can keep increasing till forced to retire. As a matter of fact civlians and teachers can keep increasing their pensions past thirty years until forced to retire and can get upwards of 90%. The police don't have that. But no one notices that. Only what they can spin around

What a concept! Honoring a contract. The problem is we are dealing with unhonorable people

They are leaving with an extra several hundred thousand more as a result of the compensation caps, its going to take a bit to make that up. Not to mention those who would have retired anyway are getting the extra $$4 also.

Yes highest paid in the country, and all the stats back that up. The public pay websites show this.

Nassau ranks 10th as far as income per county.

Default Fiscal Control Board Declares emergency

"The authority has rejected County Executive Ed Mangano’s revised budget plan and instituted a wage freeze, which is expected to save about $10.5 million.
On Wednesday, Mangano announced a plan that would close the $176 million budget gap. He also announced he would lay off 213 workers and not fill about 300 other positions."
