    Seattle Police Department Recruits In NYC

    Seattle Police Department Recruits In NYC

    WNBC.com

    NEW YORK -- The Seattle Police Department is recruiting in New York City, offering new hires a salary that is almost double what the NYPD pays its dwindling force.

    Seattle police are taking the recruitment seriously, placing a billboard on the West Side Highway that read A Job Like No Other.

    Seattle pays its police recruits $47,334 a year and the annual salary rises to a maximum base pay of $67,045 in just six years, the Daily News reported.

    NYPD recruits get a paltry $25,100 annual salary while they are in the academy. Their pay jumps to $32,800 after graduation and tops out at $59,588 after seven years.

    In addition to the higher wages, the Seattle Police Department is also offering $5,000 to cover moving expenses.

    Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly has blamed the department's starting salary for hurting recruitment. The pay scale was imposed by an arbitration panel in 2005 after the city and police union couldn't reach a deal.

    Kelly also must cut the police force by 1,000 cops because of looming budget shortfalls - resulting in the smallest department in 16 years.

    Guess if you can handle all that rain it will be good. But if you double your salary then the rain is all good..............

    The retirement sucks - no medical.

    The political environment is typically anti-police - inside the City proper anyhow.

    Seattle cops are leaving in droves.

    Money can't buy smart cops.

    I loved Washington but don't want to work in a dept that big. Besides the moving expenses wouldn't even cover shipping my horses.

    Keep in mind Seattle is a different animal then just about EVERY other police department in the area.

    There is a reason SPD officers are leaving.

    Yup, they've been in San Diego twice last year. It's only at MCRD and Camp Pendleton though - they are only testing military folks.
