I've always wondered how much cops and fireman make. I've heard of some detectives in the US making 6-figures after 20 years, but wondering how much everyone in Vancouver and other local communities make, starting out and after x years. Do city cops and RCMP have different scales? It seems that RCMP has a huge turnover but the city cops are all lifers. Salary reasons? PM me if you have info but don't want to post it public. Ballpark figures are fine.
