Hi Corvon,
S. Williams is correct. Law enforcement pay varies by region, state, county, and municipalities. The pay also varies by federal, state, and local agencies. Typically the listed "base" pay can increase significantly due to overtime (sometimes forced) related to court, holidays, and sometimes emergencies. Google the pay of any local law enforcement agency to get a sense of what pay is like in your area and then search New York, Miami, Los Angeles, and San Francisco to see how/if they vary. The pay as an incentive should be only part of the consideration. Some larger law enforcement agencies have explorer/cadet programs (some are paid) for college students. The programs allow students, who are interested in law enforcement, to get a sense of what a police officer/deputy sheriff/corrections officer's daily activities are about. Research the position you are interested in by talking to people in the those positions.

Hello Corvon, from my understanding each state/city's pay rate is on a different scale. If one city's is down 20%, they may offer some kind of incentive for you to join their force. I would also suggest you research each position before you you apply, there is a lot more to police work than just money.
Thank you comment icon Thanks for the advice. Corvon
