Night Shift Differential


Does anyone know what full night diff (doing midnights) is for a newly promoted sgt with less than 10 years on?  Yearly or biweekly?

Thanks

Trust me. Doing day tours as a newly promoted Sgt is a BIG hit on your salary...Be prepared for such a hit.

What do you mean a Big Hit on your salary?

If you go from top pay cop making OT and getting night diff to a day tour Sgt, you are going to lose out on a lot of money. The increase from top pay cop to new sgt is about $50 a paycheck, and if you take into account that you work 8:57 instead of 8:35, you are actually taking a pay cut. This effects everyone differently, I didn't do a lot of OT and did day tours most of my career, now I'm doing midnights, so I'll probably see a decent bump. I know another guy who came from transit though and he's had to make some big lifestyle changes because of how much less he's making. Once you hit top pay it pays off, but until then it can be tough sledding for some people.

Think about it. That's about $300 a check that you'll be losing if you day tours as a new Sgt. Without the OT afforded to PO's in new arrests and details, you'll be losing money the first year or two.

Sgts probation is 12 months, and you can request to come off after 6. Amazing how much misinformation is bandied about even about the most simple stuff.

I see no way this works out well for me financially, I'm a top pay detective who gets 55 hours of overtime a month. No way I'm going to make that kind of money as a sgt. I'm thinking that I might take a 20-25k pay cut. Ill have to adjust but for me it's about change just can't work at that pace anymore. That 20-25 pay cut is low balling it I feel if might be closer to 30-35.

Not knocking you guys but you all knew the numbers but you still studied for 6 months n stood on that line to pass that test. At this point it should be all in just based on all that time n money you wasted to get to this point. And also nothing in this job is Forever. It's so easy to get shipped out so fast and end up losing all the night dif or overtime you are making right now.

 They'll go to the next highest pay scale (from what they're currently making) on the Sergeants salary chart.

Oh ok cool, I'll hit top pay detective on Febuary but I'm in the next class. As of now I'm making more than a third step Sgt by a few hundreds I believe.

Sgt's probation is 12 months. Your CO can extend it to 18. The previous answer about it being 18 months long used to be correct but was changed recently.
