The average salary of a full time police officer is $41,879.00 per year.
The monthly average salary for a full time police officer is $3,490.00 per month which equals out to about $115.00 per day and sometimes less.
I made $150.00 per day at a construction job a few years ago so I was making more than a police officer.
So that means that actually police officers are not all that rich like some people believe.
For all the stuff that a police officer has to deal with on a day to day basis and the stress of being the police officer the pay really is not enough.
I'm not a police officer and make more money than a police officer does with my monthly salary being $6,000.00 per month.
My job is safer and I don't have to deal with terrible people or worry about getting shot etc.
Also not everyone is a fit for being a police officer either and you have to have thick skin and take insults etc and be ready to die at any moment.
Because because being a police officer is dangerous and you may go to work that day or night and not come come.
