    The Attorney General of the United States is the Chief Law Enforcement Officer in the US but only gets paid $191,300 a year.

    The Superintendent of Police for Chicago makes more than the mayor, $260,000, about $40,000 more than the NYPD Commissioner

    Currently LAPD Chief of Police gets the most $300,442.

    SFPD chief gets the top in the US $307,000, a brand new recruit in the SFPD academy makes about $90,000

    All will make at least 3 times as much when they leave public service.

    When I was a detective years ago a couple of other detectives made more than the superintendent because they got paid overtime.

    Only low-lifes want to work in law enforcement. Get some self-respect, you're better than that.
