New York City PD total out of academy $44,744

SF has the highest fire and police salaries in the US. Their union leadership made that a goal 10 years ago. Unions representing other Bay Area public employees just follow along. Every town in the surrounding metro area is influenced by those salaries. To ignore that influence is ludicrous. We need the service and we have to pay the going rate. In the Bay Area salary environment a bedroom community like Pacifica with no revenue other than property tax faces very grim prospects. Economic development here is a fairy tale we tell ourselves. This type of town, in this place, has outlived its time.

Pacifica did just fine in the 80's when we had the lowest pay in the Bay Area. Crime levels were even lower then.

Just wait until the pension bomb explodes in a few years. Every city will be broke.

We should reconsider outsourcing

1117 Wasn't the pension bond an obstacle to outsourcing the PD? Council just extended the
term of that portion of the bond that covered PD and Fire employees from maybe 2016 to 2020. If it was an obstacle, we'll have it for six years.
