Captain Promotions By Year


Hi all, 

Can someone please post the number of Captains promoted by year. Whatever year you can go back to would be great.

Thanks Much...

The average is 60 a year. You can look back at past threads/posts to get the exact number

thanks. I have seen these numbers in the past but can't locate them now. I guess what I'm really concerned about is actually getting promoted off this list. I'm toward the bottom and getting a little antsy. What is the possibly that the whole list gets promoted?

For years 2016, 2017, and 2018 they averaged exactly 48 a year.  This is accurate.

Anniversary date of list release today. Promotions came first week of August 2018. We are ahead of the 60 a year pace, but only by a handful. At this point there is reason to be optimistic, as we all know these things fluctuate. We will see. One things for sure, Im not studying again lol.

 It's actually 47 a year but bigfoot is close enough. Ladies and gentlemen...if you are over list number 200 you need to be concerned. I wouldnt exactly say panic at this moment though. If i was a betting man i would say the list gets to 210...no way in hell is the job going to over promote by 50 or so people. That would be an entire years worth of captains.

Good luck to all

 Agreed, I'm not taking another either.  It was hard enough getting motivated at all for the last one.  I don't know if the whole list will get made.  Top 200 are certainly safe.  They can probably promote another 15 or 20.  Will they over promote  40 or 50 guys to finish the list? I don't know.  I know they certainly want to promote the whole captain's list.  So if they can figure it out they will.

Lastly, the average is 48 a year for the past 3 calendar years.  Yes, the past 12 months have been bloated and skewed (which is a good thing) because there wasn't a list and the need grew.  If it goes back to 48 promotions a year from this point forward they would get to list number 219 give or take.  Again, will they over promote about 40 or 50 guys?  They will try.  I know that is the sentiment.  However, we will probably have a new PC by then and things change.  Let's hope for the best and have a backup plan just in case.

Sorry if this has been mentioned before, but does anyone know the starting pay for Captains ?

I know a top pay LT with OT makes more than a starting pay Captain, but what about a top pay LT with no OT ? What would the difference in pay be ?

So are there no steps for discretionary promotions? It seems the top pay of the previous rank exceeds the third step in the higher rank.

LOL. Patrol Cops in Westchester, Nassau and Suffolk are laughing at the pay.

Dont have the pay chart. But Suffolk is currently at 139k base for PO and 155k after there current contract is done in 2024. Takes 12 years to get to top step since 2012. So not sure how big there jumps are year to year. All of them are well over 200k with overtime etc

There is no way a Suffolk cops base pay is 139k. I doubt top pay after 12 years is even that much. I remember top pay being a little over 100k

 You can doubt all you want but that is what they are making! Also anticrime has a 2.5% pay differential on top as well. Its all in their new contract.

 You're right !!! Top pay cops base in Suffolk will be 155k as someone mentioned and this is for a COP so just imagine a Sgt/LT.

As a home owner in long island that's more disgusting to read considering this was a proposed deal that the pba agreed on not like they fought tooth and nail to get. I dont know how their salary just continues to go through the roof and cops will make almost same amount as our commissioner. Glad I pay sky high taxes to live here...

Don't forget the first captain promotion off our list in August 2018 also had 10 from the previous list so it's moving at a pretty good rate. Not saying the bottom of the list is 100% safe, but also it's looking like they'll make it to the end even if they slow down a bit on promotions. Every time I see a chief or inspector retire all I think is "Awesome, another spot."

 GOOD FOR THEM! Only a very small percentage of your taxes goes towards their salary. A majority of your taxes goes towards the school district!

 I agree, i don't understand why it's so difficult for some to become a Mr/Ms...this machine will continue to run with or without them.  Why not get out at a decent age to have some enjoyable quality of life? Just my $0.02.

 It's definitely not an easy decision to make...good gig, ot, flexibility to who knows where u will end up, no ot, no flexibility, stat after stat..i guess it depends on your future plans and how much time u have left.  Its definitely a personal choice as you will definitely make more as a Lt but at the sacrifice of spending more time at work but at the end of the day, what does it matter right? Since we are all in it for the end game at 233 Bwy it may make financial sense to turn it down.  Best of luck whichever way the pendulum swings though..
