While it's obvious that the overtime / off-duty program needs a rework...
Of the roughly 120 cops who joined the force since 2016, 27 made more than $45,000 last year counting overtime, city payroll records show. If their off-duty work is included, 29 topped $60,000.

$37k is an astoundingly low number for a police officer, and $45k with overtime is still really low. Maybe the pay scale needs a total rework so that officers start off with higher numbers and don't get crazy raises to the point of making $250k/year eventually.
