Milkshake_revenge t1_jczhcrr wrote

But don’t they still have like 36,000 uniformed officers? 36,000 cops in 300 square miles. I mean sure there’s gonna be some extra overtime if they’re understaffed by 1000 but I can’t figure how that amounts to $100,000,000 in overtime for 1 year.

Edit: I forgot I was in /r/nyc when I questioned something about the police. Next time they spend my tax money without explanation I’ll praise it.

It’s public information. Every time there’s a police involved shooting, the media is all over it. Each and every day, all you hear is people getting shot or stabbed. People killing each other. Where’s the protest the against the violence in the community? Kids can’t get out of school without getting shot at or stabbed. People can’t go out to the corner store without getting shot by before a nearby gang shooting because of some silly grudge. People can’t go to work on the train without seeing fights in the train car.

36k officers but divide that by 3 8 hour shifts, meaning at any one time theres about 12k officers out on the streets.

Then you have to factor in special details like the subway one right now, special high profile events like sports, and then the fact that 12k at any one time is the max and that number goes down with officers on vacation, sick or just on a normal day off which they get 2 of per week. That means that at any point theres only about 9k officers working.

As for money, Overtime is 1.5x the hourly rate. For normal rank and file thats like $60 an hour. More for sergeants and supervisors. That kind of money adds up quickly.


Crimsonwolf1445 t1_jd2obzh wrote

36k is everyone under nypd payroll from chiefs to cleaners

Also school safety and traffic agents

Basically its an inaccurate representation of staffing numbers.

I started the process of joining NYPD about a year ago, I thought with all I heard about them being so understaffed it would be a quick process to at least get into the academy.

About a year later, I still haven't even secured my seat in the academy. It took me less time to join the army, from first contacting the recruiter to finishing infantry school.

People have mentioned all the issues with mass quitting and not enough people wanting to replace them, but in don't think people realize how long and difficult the process is for those of us who do. The whole things a mess.

Everyone should know that 90% of cops are sick of the forced overtime.

In the NYPD, almost all overtime is forced. Ask any cop. I have 2 friends who left the job because of forced overtime, they did at least 75 hours of forced overtime a month and had no life because of it.

The real reason is upper brass and our governor and mayor don’t care about how your money is being used and don’t care about cops and don’t care about them not having a life. We have no accountability for where our money is spent in the NYPD and that is the major problem.

Just look at the forced overtime on cops standing in the subways. Ask them if they want to be there. You will get the answer of “fuck no” 99% of the time.

HendrixChord12 t1_jcza6ng wrote

Serious question, how much more expensive? It’s time and a half pay but how much does not paying for another persons insurance counterbalance?


pk10534 t1_jczd4ec wrote

Well, I don’t know NYC’s exact figures, but let’s say we live in RandomCity and pay our officers $20/hour, which would be $30/hr for overtime. We have two choices: we can either hire a third officer, or ask our two officers to take 2 extra shifts a week. Let’s see the monthly costs for each:

Officer A

Base pay: $3200

Overtime: $1920,

Officer B

Base Pay: $3200

Overtime: $1920

Total monthly cost: $10,200

Total hours worked: 56 hours/week + 56 hours/week = 448


Officer A/B/C

Base Pay $3200 x 3

Total: $9600

Total hours worked: 480

Over the course of the month, by having officers take overtime rather than filling a position, we’re actually spending more money and getting fewer hours worked. Sure, there are other expenses related to personnel - health insurance, pensions, etc. But even on a tiny scale of 2-3 officers, we’re already seeing savings of almost $1000/month and an extra 40 hours of street patrols. Now multiply that to fit NYPD’s personnel numbers of over 30,000 and as you can imagine, those savings will probably grow insanely larger. Another issue is those missing hours add up - somebody has to patrol or do paperwork or respond to calls. So those officers might have to pick up 3 extra shifts a week now. And the disparity and savings grow and grow. Overall it just doesn’t make a lot of fiscal sense to keep shoveling overtime money out, because it typically results in less efficient work for more money


oreosfly t1_jczljjb wrote

Like any other job, there’s also an unquantifiable morale cost when it comes to forced OT. If you are actively looking for OT then it must be great to get paid time and a half for all this extra time. If you don’t want to revolve your life around work so much, you may be inclined to quit, and it can cost quite a bit to hire and train new people.


pk10534 t1_jczlwnp wrote

Excellent point. I don’t want tired, overworked people with guns on the street either. And especially if they have families or just value fee time (I know I sure do), that’s a deterrent


MillennialNightmare t1_jczh7mp wrote

What about 20 years from now when that extra officer is collecting a pension and getting their health care paid for until death?


pk10534 t1_jcziiwr wrote

Again, I don’t know NYPD’s specific pension numbers or how specifically they budget, but like most pensions it’s not just a bank account, it’s invested. It’s not just a flat bank deposit that never grows. And not every officer is going to stay for 20-25 years. Some may stay for 10 and then move to Long Island, for instance.


_neutral_person t1_jcztkck wrote

This makes no sense. Are you saying the only cost of an officer is their salary?


pk10534 t1_jcztvlw wrote

Did you read the bottom paragraph at all? I addressed that and very clearly stated those expenses had to be factored in too.


_neutral_person t1_jczvp67 wrote

Exactly the issue. You are under estimating the cost of healthcare and pension.

Pension is paid into a fund per officer. Invested or not, it's a cost. With 20 years retirement and an excellent pension plan, it's going to be expensive. Then you have healthcare. Post covid essential services with good healthcare costs have risen almost 33 percent, once again per officer.

An officer doing OT saves the PD money. It also offers flexibility for when they don't need officers.

You can argue it's because of the shortage but the NYPD has been abusing OT for decades. This is not new.


NetQuarterLatte t1_jd06q0s wrote

The NYC police budget may seem like a lot, but compared to other cities, that's a small police budget relative to the overall city's budget.

Thank you for posting this. For people that live in the city this sub really has a hard time understanding what a massive undertaking policing this place is.


magnetic_yeti t1_jd1jy0g wrote

This just shows NY does more than the other cities, and has the revenue to match. Additionally, because we’re dense we can do more and have the tax base to match. We spend $1,300 per person on policing, just based on the budgeted amount of $10.9 Billion. That’s an absurd amount per resident.

LA spends $3.2 Billion, or $1,000 per person. And LA is sprawling so they don’t get the benefit of density and two officers covering a small territory. LA just does less so has a much smaller budget. I don’t think highways come out of LA’s budget at all, and that’s got to be a bigger share of transportation spending than in NY.

bloomberg OP t1_jcyh13h wrote

From Bloomberg News reporter Fola Akinnibi:

The New York City Police Department has exceeded its overtime budget by almost $100 million and it is on pace to break a 10-year high for spending on extra hours for officers.

Before taking office, Mayor Eric Adams pledged to reduce the NYPD’s overtime spending by half in his first year by deploying officers more efficiently and reducing the number on duty at parades and other events.

Yet, the NYPD has spent $472 million on officer overtime through February, exceeding its budget by $98 million, according to a report from New York City Comptroller Brad Lander. The final tally will be much higher because the fiscal year ends June 30. Lander’s office said the department is on pace to spend $740 million, which would be the most in a decade.

“If New York City had unlimited cash, it would be lovely to allow teachers unlimited overtime to stay afterschool to help every kid learn to read, or social workers unlimited shifts to help counsel New Yorkers struggling with mental illness,” Lander said in a statement. “But other agencies aren’t allowed to show total disregard for their overtime budget, and we can’t afford for the NYPD to do so year after year.”

I think my reading comprehension is fine. The opposite of least, is most. This list (and many others like it), show policing is not nearly as dangerous as police unions would have you believe. It's true, danger doesn't necessarily correlate directly with death, but it's a large part of it. Firefighters have an inherently dangerous job because of the high rate of injuries and things like smoke inhalation.

Serious question, part of the problem is how unattractive the job is salary wise, why doesn’t the government raise it?

For example, a city like Seattle police has a pay salary of $109k; while NYPD is at $85k, NYC definitely makes way more money than Seattle but can’t offer the same? Why is that? If the NYPD was hiring for $109k I can definitely see people applying, minus before forced for crazy amounts of overtime their entire career.


team_suba t1_jczrbxv wrote

The problem really isn’t salary, well top salary at least. Any cop will tell you that once you reach top pay you are going to be well over 6 figures even with minimal overtime. All city agencies make their money in overtime, it’s no secret. So how much you make as a cop is entirely up to you. But even bare minimum will be over 100.

The problem is eating shit for 5 years until you get to top pay. And the raise increments are very back loaded so you really don’t start seeing anything meaningful until year 4. And there’s a huge percentage that don’t even make it that point for a bunch of different reasons. That’s why when you look at average salary it’s so low. But if you look at someone who’s been in nypd for let’s say 7-10 years (go ahead out there name in on and test if you’d like) their salary will be over 125k guaranteed.

Regardless, salary is not the reason why the nypd is an unattractive job. Just look at how people treat and feel towards police. You can join any other city agency, make just as much, work less/ not as hard, and not be hated by your community.
