Maybe, I misread your comment. Are you saying teachers are paid higher than Police?

All I can say is I have lived in New Jersey, New York, Connecitcut, and Florida. I know for a fact (excluding Florida) that Police receive much higher compensation than the average person in the area. In NY/NJ, they may start out near the median, but then they increase to max pay in only a handful of years. Some town/county police forces everyone is making over $100K, and that's just salary... not counting OT, certain allowances, and benefits.
