The mayor of Cincinnati is proud to announce that $13.4 million of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act money will coming to retain 50 police officers from being laid off for 3 years...my fuzzy math skills say roughly $89,000 per year per officer.

Now granted is a job that I declined to do (was accepted to the academy for the Ohio Highway Patrol which has more stringent than Cincinnati PD) but $89K/yr? Is that even a realistic pay scale?

It seems about right. Where I work the cost of benefits of a person is about 2/3 their annual salary. If that was the case here, the police would be making about $50,000 a year, which seems about right for the average street cop.

Well $50K does sound better even though 2/3 for benefits would make it closer to $60K...although if you take in consideration set asides for covering legal expenses of say tazering and then pumping 3 rounds into a "deadly" Chihuahua like the officers in Reading (a suburb of Cincinnati) did.
