Sgt pay scale steps


Very simple 1 day as det=top pay sgt

I was under the impression that not all detectives go straight to top pay Sgt. Depending on how much time on you have on the job.

If you get promoted to Detective after you were already a top pay cop, the pay scale is different then if you got promoted to Detective before you were a top pay cop.

So for example, if you made Detective as a uncle and got your shield on your 4th year, you have to see alot more steps to Detective top pay then a guy who was a top pay cop.

So in that instance, if you made Detective and then make Sergeant on your 5th or even 6th year, you still were not a Top Pay Detective and your salary would be LOWER then a Step 1 Sergeant, causing you not to go straight to top pay.

Wasn't the only reason Detectives were going straight to top pay boss was because they COULD NOT take a pay cut ?

January 1, 2017 $92,184
January 1, 2018 $94,488
December 17, 2018 $97,322

These are THE TOP PAY salary figures of a 3rd Grade Detective.

First year Sergeant as of March 2017 makes $86,592

If you are an Undercover who took your promotion before your 5th year on the job, you have many more steps to get to Top Pay Detective. A newly promoted Undercover with less then 5 years on who makes about $83,000, will not hit top pay Sergeant when he gets promoted, because the starting pay for a new boss is $86,592. That Detective needs to reach higher steps exceeding that of $86,592 in order to skip that step. It all depends what pay step you are in and what your rank is getting payed that year. This is how it was explained to me.

If your current step in a Detective Pay scale is $ $87,000 for example, and you make boss, youll go to the next step in Sergeant ABOVE your current pay, which will 3rd year Sergeants pay. If it is UNDER what a first year Sergeant is supposed to make, you will not go straight to top pay Sergeant, you will get payed as a rookie boss in your first year.

This situation mostly applies to undercover officers.

Again, this is how someone (A Detective himself) broke it down to me. If I am wrong or I missed something, feel free to correct me.

Actually let me rephrase that...if you are a top pay cop who makes detective and you get promoted to sgt the next day you are now a top pay sgt....if you got ur detective shield for whatever reason before you were a top pay cop it puts you in a different tier so in this scenario you would not be a top pay sgt...soooooooooo simply put....top pay cop who makes detective no matter how long you have ur det shield for when you get promoted to sgt you will be top pay sgt

Do you guys think that it's worth it to defer ur sgt promotion if u are scheduled to get ur det shield In March 2018? would this list expire by then u think?

If you mean that you are up to get promoted to Sgt. within the next class or two but are also eligible to get promoted to Det. in March 2017, a I would definitely defer promotion. If your Det. shield is coming in March 2018, you and your family have some thinking to do. At the end it will all depend on the unit you are assigned to. Some will argue that it is a good incentive to go right to top pay, but in my opinion if you work in the wrong unit why risk a sure thing (Sgt. promotion) for what may come (Det. promotion). Besides you should not be thinking Sgt. top pay with an Lt. exam coming your way, you should be getting promoted to Lt. way before you reach Sgt. top pay.

 After 2 years of temporary non-investigative assignment, they put me on track last August, I  think u'r right, deferring in for 1 year is pretty risky. It is what it is

Using simple rough math, with a top pay cop basic at approx 78k and a entry level Sgt as of March of this year at approx 86, it's a nice 8,000 raise the day we get sworn in....sweet. Works out to roughly an extra 310ish per pay period.

There is also that matter of the 2.5 % NCO bonus. Sergeants and Lieutenants are involved in the NCO program too. That 2.5 % was not part of a yearly raise.

What's going to be the increase pay for newly promoted Sgt. I'm hearing as long as there is a gap newly promoted Sgt's don't get a pay increase. is there a certain percentage we have to uphold for a gap between top pay cop to Sgt?

A top pay cop cannot make more than a newly promoted Sgt. This new PBA contract makes a top pay cop's salary more than a newly promoted Sgt's salary however. I'm very curious to see how this plays out

 Should play out one of 2 ways:

1. Sba contract is amended to have entry level sgts make more than top pay cops or

 

2. All new sgts will be placed into the 2nd step of Sba contract as opposed to the entry level step. 

 

You cannot take a pay cut.

What do you mean? The 3% should kick in for all Sgts on the day that raise takes effect as per the contract

Sgts get a 2.5 raise 3/30/17 and 3% on 3/30/18. 

I guess technically top pay cops make more than even third year Sgts only until 3/30/17

New top pay base salary is 85,292. Here is Sgt salary steps

They'll likely just adjust the first three steps (by as little as necessary) to avoid entry level sgts from being paid below what top pay cops get.

What this PBA deal exposes, is how poor the sgts deal was to begin with, namely the (not so) hidden zeros that they took from the city. If we essentially all got the same deal (1s, followed by 2.5 and then 3), then there's no reason that entry level sgts should be lower than a T.P. cop. The hidden zeros have caught up to the SBA deal.

Any top pay cop  on the verge of getting promoted to Det. should strongly consider wait until they get their shield first before taking the promotion to Sergeant . You will avoid all this non sense and go straight to top pay.

At the sba meeting they said the 3/1/17 raise we are getting puts sba base above pba top pay and that is all it has to be. They don't count night diff or longevity. As long as our base is higher then their top pay there is no reopener to sba contract. That was the city limit to raise the pay they said!!!

The entry Sgt base pay (86,354) is lower than PO base pay (now 87,211). That's not counting longevity or night diff.

They are not counting the 2.5 NCO as "base pay" but SHOULD cause it speciffically states it will be considered as salary for overtime and pension purposes

Just spoke to the SBA office yes top pay cop is $87,211 and yes entry level Sgt is 86,354 as of 3/30/17. So POs will be making more then entry level Sgt (until 3/30/18 then it's 88,945). There is no reopening clause and Sgt will not be bumped up to a higher step until the lawyers look at the contract. Now Sgt's getting promoted after the PBA contract will automatically be bumped up to the 4th step which is 88,044. I hope this is wrong,just passing the info I find this F-up! Please call the office see what they are saying. Please tell me I'm wrong.
