Pay NYPD more

Seattle is trying poach New York City's police. They're actively recruiting in New York City.

The Daily News reports :
Seattle pays its police recruits $47,334 a year and the annual salary rises to a maximum base pay of $67,045 in just six years.

NYPD recruits get a paltry $25,100 annual salary while they are in the academy. Their pay jumps to $32,800 after graduation and tops out at $59,588 after seven years.

Seattle will pay $5,000 in moving expenses as well. Not to mention that cost of living in New York City is higher as well.

New York City police officer need a raise. And I'm willing to pay higher taxes to pay for it.
