You mean rookies, not rank and file. This is part of the smoke and mirrors of cop contracts, they can point to their poor underpaid rookies that they threw under the bus in the last contract since they weren't there to vote.


Or how a few years after they actually get that step, they get frozen again?


Okay, i'll bite, how long are they at this next "frozen" step and how much is that pay? Since you seem close to the conversation, I'm interested in seeing the pay scale cause I see many youngish looking cops driving BMWs, Benzs and late model SUVs. Many officers I know from my home town own boats and jetskis and many other toys. How is that possible if the pay is so bad?

Make no mistake, I am not anti cop and I appreciate that it can be a tough job at times...a lot of family and friends are police but the "woe is me" gets old when EVERYONE sees a detail on a job site getting paid time and a half sitting in their civilian cars or standing on a corner texting.
