Okay Gurth, as promised, here's the basic pay scale for the LAPD.

First of all though, the extras.

Officers with college degrees may, depending on courses taken, may recieve a
higher salary.

Officers with the ability to write or speak a language other than English may
recieve salary premiums from 2.75% to 5.5%, depending on language and

Officers may recieve tuition reimbursements from the Cal State University
system and the LA Community College district.

Plenty 'o sick days and vacation days.

A very healthy pension plan.

And of course, health and dental plans.

Now, onto the pay scale.

POLICE OFFICER I (first 18 month) $35,538-47,982

10 years +$115/month
15 years +$231/month
20 years +$346/month


The variantions in pay per rank are due to the factors listed above, and also
speciality/department (i.e. SWAT get paid more).

That's what I've got. Should help a bunch.
