Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Policemans with more experience do not necessarily bring home bigger paychecks. In fact, experience in this field tends to impact compensation minimally. Although individuals who have less than five years' experience earn $40K on average, people with five to 10 years benefit from a notably larger average of $49K. The average pay reported by folks with 10 to 20 years of experience is around $50K. As Policemans reach more than two decades on the job, compensation remains commensurate with experience; the average pay in this group is $52K.
