• 957 Officers have left SDPD for all reasons since July 1, 2000

  • 240 Officers have left SDPD for other law enforcement agencies

  • Since January of 2006, one San Diego Police Officer resigns to go to another law enforcement agency every 5.87 days


  • Current budgeted police officer positions (includes all ranks): 2,127

  • Unfilled vacant positions: 171 (8.0%)

  • Actual number of officers (all ranks): 1,956 (92.0%)

  • Total unavailable (light duty, industrial leave, military leave, 96 recruits in training, etc): 143 (6.7%)

  • Net officers actually working (includes all ranks): 1,813 (85.2%)

  • That 1,813 officers actually working is

    314 officers

    below the budgeted number of officers!

  • Population of the City of San Diego is 1.31 million (one officer for 717 residents - 1.39 officers/thousand)

    NEW

    The next question is how many of these 1,813 officers are actually working on our patrol beats in uniform?
    Subtracting out command and administrative personnel (7 chiefs, 14 captains, 49 lieutenants)
    Subtracting out supervisory personnel (312 sergeants)
    Subtracting out detectives (306 detectives)
    This leave 1,125 officers who are in uniform patrolling the streets

    These 1,125 officers work 4 ten-hour days a week.
    1,125 x 4 = 4,500 ten-hour officer shifts available each week
    4,500 divided by 7 days a week = 643 officer shifts per day
    643 divided by 3 shifts per day = 214 officers per shift
    This 214 officers represents the average number of officers working each shift.
    In reality busier shifts have more officers assigned than slower shifts and there are shift overlaps.

    Now apply the population of the city of San Diego.
    1.3 million divided by the average number of officers working per shift yields:
    One officer for every 6,074 residents or .000164 officers per thousand residents
    The city's 324 square miles translates to one officer for every 1.5 square miles

    Keep in mind that these 214 officers are only the average number of officers working per shift.
    Reducing daily staffing would be vacations, sick, injuries, training, compensatory time off, personal holidays, special assignments out of patrol, etc.
    These additional daily reductions amount to about 15% each shift.
    So the realty is there are about 181 officers working each shift.

    So a more accurate average would be one officer working on duty for every 7,182 residents
    .000139 officers working on duty per thousand residents
    On the average each officer working on duty is responsible to patrol 1.79 square miles

    Calendar year 2008 resignations to other law enforcement agencies

    Note: A small number of officers have been granted a leave of absence and they officially will not be considered a loss until they actually resign or their leave grant has expired. In some other cases, the officers may be burning off accumulated vacation time and it might be several weeks before they are officially off the roster. This website counts them as a loss as soon as we have a separation date. Retirees are not listed under resignations and are shown under the retired category which is not always current since some retiree's effective date of separation might be several months in the future. In some cases more senior officers are electing to retire then go to another agency. In these instances, the officer is only considered as a retirement and not resigning to go to another agency. Due to these circumstances, retirement totals may not be accurate until the end of the fiscal year.

    TheBlueLine.com Police Compensation Survey

    Listed below is a website that ranks the top 200 law enforcement agencies in its Police Officer Compensation Survey. The survey is from December of 2004, so it is rather old. San Diego ranks 176th out of 200. The index is based on a formula that combines pay with time off, over a 30-year period, and then is adjusted by the local cost of living. Our salary and benefits were essentially frozen on December 18, 2004, and this would reflect a snapshot of how SDPD stood in comparison with 200 other agencies in 2004.

    The file below is the 2006 Police Officer Compensation Survey of the top 200 law enforcement agencies. This is from January of 2006 and would not reflect subsequent raises. This is an indexed survey from policepay.com. It does not include non-economic benefits. You should review the first listed file first as this gives an explanation of the indexing criterion. The survey provides two ratings, one for cost of living adjustments (COLA) and one without. Under this January, 2006, COLA index survey, SDPD is ranked 188th. The December, 2004, survey shown above, SDPD was ranked 176th. That is a loss of 12 steps in 13 months! One a month.

    I was updating the law enforcement links to another website that I maintain and I found a total of 643 websites for California law enforcement agencies. Click here to visit this list of California law enforcement agencies. But before you do, I became curious as to how many of these listed websites are actually recruiting police officers at the present time. I visited all 643 websites and found that 162 (25%) of these agencies are hiring now, as of April 1, 2007. I was also curious as to the monthy salary of these 162 agencies and started compiling each agency's salary.

    To your left, is a table listing the top monthly salaries of all 162 agencies who are currently hiring. Clicking on a monthly salary will take you to the website of the agency offering the salary. See if you can find the correct monthly salary for the San Diego Police Department. In your hunt you will find what other agencies are paying, which I am certain will surprise you.

    All the agencies listed the range of their salaries either on their agency website or on the website of their human resource unit for their governmental agency. These listed figures have to be accurate as they are advertising for recruitment purposes so these are their "official" salaries. I used the highest limit of the salaries listed, as each agency would want to show their best to potential candidates. Most agencies had their recruiting brochure available so this was relatively easy to obtain the official information on salaries and benefits. Some agencies do have some other additives and incentives but I just went by their top salary listing.

    Now consider this, it took me one weekend to gather all the salaries and benefits offered by 162 California law enforcement agencies. These are the official offerings of these 162 agencies. The City of San Diego hired Buck Consultants of San Francisco to come up with a salary survey of just 19 agencies which took three months and cost $29,000! That's almost $10,000 a month or over $1,500 per agency. All this official information is public and available to anyone.

    I or anybody with internet access could have gathered the information for these 162 agencies in two days. I would have done it for free for the city. It took me just one weekend to gather all the salaries and benefits and I may post these at a later date. I suppose I could get $240,000 from the city for the information on the 162 agencies I compiled so I might hold out. Maybe this information will be of benefit in the near furture. If and when I should show the salaries and benefits of these 162 agencies, I will probably list a direct link to their official hiring announcement for employment.

    Watch out for each other and be safe........
