crenshaw....Since you indicate knowledge of the benefits, why not enlighten the rest of the populace with this expertise. What is the total compensation of entry level personnel and more senior deputies ? What is the cash... More ›

Concerning country law enforcement pay, when lobbying for pay increases by individuals or their families, it is common to leave the benefits out of the picture. I believe it costs the county $797.51 per employee for health care... More ›
