• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Not for 25k a year base salary. Even with OT and extra jobs, you can't afford a decent life style in the city. That's why everyone gets hired there, certified, then off to another department at 3x the pay.

Compare what a cop on 1 side of 42 & 8 makes vs. a cop on the other side makes

Port,

Funny, the NYCPD posts it's complete pay scale on it's web site but the Port Authority doesn't; I guess the PAPD doesn't want to embarrass anybody. The best I could find is http://www.panynj.gov/pr/pressrelease.php3?id=251 (see the fourth paragraph. Remember these are their 2002 base numbers and they were already ahead of the NYCPD's top 2006 pay scale by $10,756). But forget the base pays. Scroll down to paragraphs four and five at http://www.tkb.org/NewsStory.jsp?storyID=121234 and compare those numbers to the numbers the NYPD throws at you at the bottom of the link PortCop offered above. Those are the numbers that really count.

G-d bless the PAPBA.

Keep up the great work, PortCop.
