    New Recruits Face Pay Cut

    For the few forces that are actually recruiting new officers(a rare event) New recruits are facing a reduction of 4,000 a year to a starting salary of 19,000.
    Good way to encourage the best candidates, I think not.

    More here.

    Well they have to find the money to pay the new Police and Crime Commissioners from somewhere.


    God, I am so glad I served through the Edmond Davies years!

    New Recruits Face Pay Cut

    That is an interesting thought. If a US citizen moves to the UK, could they join the local constabulary? Or must you be a UK born citizen? Also, is it hard to learn the language? (Just kidding!)

    And, of course, of that 19000 they will pay 14% of that into the pension!

    Just like a cop to have to do more with less. How in the hell are they supposed to raise a family on that?

    That was my starting pay at my first department 10 years ago.

    I couldn't imagine making that much now
    The world would be much cleaner if blind people carried brooms instead of sticks.

    At communion, when the priest says "Body of Christ", I say "Thanks, I've been working out", then I grab the cracker and run back to my seat

    They've got us surrounded? Good. Now we can fire in any direction. Those bastards won't get away this time.

    That's starting pay at my department now ($31,100). But, Kentucky is 10 years behind the rest of the nation in everything else so I guess that's about right...
