Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Policemans, level of experience appears to be a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation — more experience does not correlate to noticeably higher pay. Salaries for the relatively untried average out to around $41K, but survey participants with five to 10 years of experience earn a significantly higher median of $49K. On average, Policemans make $50K following one to two decades on the job. Ultimately, more time spent in the workforce does seem to translate to bigger paychecks; seasoned veterans with more than 20 years of experience report a median income of $51K.
