Part-time police pay

It's hard to believe what part-time police officers are paid in our local communities.

A recent VND story said part-timers start at $10 to $12.50 an hour. That's a disgrace. These men and women put their lives on the line every time they put on their uniforms. There are many nonprofessional jobs that earn twice the pay as police officers.

I think more consideration of salaries is needed when it comes to hiring police officers.
