    How many times have you rubbed elbows (or anything else) with her?

    Anywho, I said people (plural) not person (singular) so yeah, you would need to say more.

    I would say it depends on the city they are serving in. The cost of living and the crime rate for that city should be taken into account when considering police salary.

    It's amazing.

    Any public servant that puts their lives on the line or who save lives without question, should be paid a lot more than they are.
    The government, and its law enforcement agencies, are there to HELP you protect yourself and your family. Ultimately, your own health and safety is your own responsibiliy. The duties of the courts are to litigate concerns, provide just compensation, and ensure justice. The police are there to ASSIST you in your own self-protection. Being a cop is an admirable profession, but only to a certain degree. Ultimately, they are there to write the report. When homicides occur, the officer is there to draw a chalk line of your dead body, not to actually save you. The best way to protect yourself from other people is to firstly make good social decisions (which is sometimes a subjective matter), and secondly to arm yourself and to be trained in some sort of combat, martial arts, or gun training.

    The cop will be there to help you if he's fast enough, but I think when it comes down to life-or-death scenarios, people would rather have a gun than a telephone.

    why-its a job that is easy to fill. go to any big university and look at the test scores and HS GPA's of the various majors and pre-professoinal schools. those studying to be teachers are generally the bottom of the groups.

    the entry cost to be a cop are very low compared to say engineers, doctors, lawyers (as an attorney I note there are way too many attorneys in the USA and way too many law schools). that is why those occupations don't pay all that highly.

    Re: How much should cops be paid?

    I feel they should start around 50-60K and depending on the state they live in? It should go up from there. I mean these cops working in big crime infested city and states? Should get more. Their pay should somewhat reflect the dangers of their jobs even thought it is a job they made a personal choice to do.

    Example: copper working the streets of NY city should make more than some cop working in small low rate crime city.
