    The police chiefs of tiny towns in NY and NJ make almost as much as the NYC Police chief - blows my mind. I was talking to a co-worker in Texas and he said cops down there don't even come close to the salaries in the northeast. What gives??

    Same reason they take their bloated pensions out of places like ny and retire to the south.

    Cost of living is through the roof in the Northeast.

    Taxes and the size of the city. Small villages cannot afford huge salaries in the budget. Pretty simple. I am a state police officer in the Northwest and do pretty well, but I know officers that work for wealthy suburbs/ towns and they make double what I do.

    The reality is that a small group of people control a town's budget in the NE so the majority don't care. As long as the town is safe and the schools are great most people don't about real estate taxes that go up every year.

    What amazes me is that people in CA put up with bad schools after paying all those taxes.

    Cost of living, I'd imagine. I could buy mega acres in Texas for what I have up in the Pacific NW.

    That, and it's smart to scale the pay the cops to cost-of-living in the local area; San Francisco has utterly failed at this and now most cops live way outside the city. If an earthquake hits and knocks out the bridges, it's going to be a big challenge to get all the off-duty first responders there.

    Cheap ass Republican's run the local government in the South and pay slave wages. That's also why the public schools in the South suck donkey dick.
