Hi all,
I am a police officer over here in the UK. I joined the job in '85 on leaving the military and originally worked in central London. I moved out to a provinsial force in 1990 and became a dog handler in 1992.....last year I gave up the streets for a job in dispatch and have 4 years left for my pension.
I have visited the U.S. a few times and have been fortunate enough to have a few ridealaongs...I am looking forward to using the forum.
If any off you are in Lake Tahoe or Vegas in August i'll gladly stand you a beer.......perhaps I shouldn't have said that I might be inundated with people taking me up on the offer.
Stay safe
Dave

Dave--Welcome to Police Link.  Ejoy the experience.  Carl

Just curious Dave, I am retired Wash. D.C. Police Officer, on your retirement system, how many years do you have to put in, age? etc., and what type of pension system do you have?

It's a catch 22 mate.......we have to do 30 years for a full pension but once you hit the 15 mark you are stuck because you loose to much if you don't do the full whack. I don't have to do my full 30 as I have transferred my military pension. Guys leaving at the moment after the full term get around £72,000 ($140,000) and a monthly pension of around £1,000 ($2,000).

Hey Lango... great to see you here!  Bob and I will be sure to join you in Vegas In August, and we'll even buy the beer! 



You may know where you are and what you're doing...
God may know where you are and what you're doing...
But if your dispatcher doesn't know where you are and what you are doing, then I hope you and God are on very good terms!!

It is but we pay twice the national average into the pension scheme.....but it's worth it at the end.
