This is an answer for all the people that come into my department lobby and complain how they pay the guys salaries Blah Blah Blah.

1. In New Hampshire we do not have state tax, you pay only property tax. This means that if you do not own a house/property you do not pay the guys salaries. If you are however one of the few people who own a house/property you pay on average 5,000 a year for property tax. That my friend will not buy you a Police department or even one Officer part time.

2. The average Patrolmans salary in this state is about $45,000. Maybe if you are on welfare that seems like a lot of money but in the real world that aint squat. Considering what they have to see and do to get that, it doesn't even come close to adding up. For instance on any given day when you come into our lobby to complain about your parking ticket that you cant afford, Some of those officers will be at a untimely. (Most recentley a beautiful 16 y.o. female who thought she had nothing in this world to live for so she hung herself from a beam in her bedroom.) Some of those officers are handling a report of sexual abuse on a sweet little 5 year old girl who doesnt want "him" to get in trouble. And still more of those Officers will be parenting your children because you can't or wont, they will be handling domestics because your neighbor is drunk and likes to beat his wife....OOOHHH could i go on and on.

3. Take that 45,000 dollars and subract from it what they have lost in order to do their job.
A) Their spouses. No not all cops cheat only a small few of them do. Most marriages end because of the stress of the job and the hours.
B) The chances to see their kids play sports, school events, dance recitals or even to spend quality time with their kids at all.
C) Most of the holidays and weekends. You may be shocked to know it but they have to work them.
D) Their health. Try living with the stuff they see and the stress they have and see how healthy you are.

So Sir or Ma'am The next time you come into my lobby, show them some respect because there is no way in HELL you could do what they do, for us.
