Ridgewood Village Bergen 13 median years of service  $145,874

Updated on May 9, 2017 at 4:43 PM Posted on May 9, 2017 at 8:13 AM

NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

New Jersey cops now earn a median salary of more than six figures, state treasury data shows.

An NJ Advance Media analysis of public employee salary data found that the median salary for more than 19,000 municipal police officers was $105,106 as of the end of 2016.

That’s an increase of about $14,400, or 16 percent, from what it was seven years ago when The Star-Ledger did the same analysis.

The analysis also showed that 60 percent of municipal police officers made at least $100,000 in 2016 – up from 30 percent in 2009.

The data also shows that the towns with the highest median salaries were wealthier suburban towns with very little crime and higher costs of living, and were mostly in Bergen County.
