Police officer: $117,157
Again these aren’t perfect. I excluded anyone who didn’t make roughly the base salary at the start of the calendar year. Quite a few police officers and teachers made less than the base, which I took to mean they didn’t work a full year.
Scary that only 130 police officers made at least the base salary in 2008.
Also the averages are only for the rank of police officer and firefighter. The averages would have gone up if I included captains, sergeants, etc.
I don’t know if it was an error or not, but one Fremont teacher $235,9222.
