🀬 Vallejo Police Department

Vallejo’s police chief has decided to retire at the rather young age of 50. His retirement pension: ~$19,000 per month for the rest of his life, which is over $200,000 per year.

If that’s not disgusting enough, because he unexpectedly announced his retirement without allowing the city council to find another chief, the city is forced to re-hire him as interim chief while he is at the same time collecting his $19,000/month retirement pension. Of course he’ll be paid for this interim work at the rate of roughly $20,000 per month. This means that the police chief will earn $39,000 per month, half of which he gets for doing jack shit.

I’d say this is absolutely wrong, but I have to remember that I live in the United States where nothing is holier than a police officer. All praise the men in blue.

Vallejo police chief will walk away with a pension worth about $19,000 a month. But wait, there’s more … [SF Chronicle]
