    Do they still have horrible retirement? If it has improved, I might take this exam.

    I also noticed there's an Environmental Conservation Officer exam scheduled on the Civil Service link someone provided. I think they raised the prices to take these exams, the Conservation Officer exam fee is $35 dollars so I'm assuming the University Police exam is the same price. I think they used to be less then that.

    the retirement has not improved as they still do not have contract so its still 30/55. It might get worse, I believe the talk is it will be 33/62 thanks to patterson.

    All of the canvass letters they sent me said starting pay was about $39,000. I believe top pay is around 70. You can find the salaries of SUNY PD at the state payroll database. http://www.timesunion.com/data/payroll/

    Where do you get your information? The job varies from region to region and campus to campus, but many SUNY cops are doing as much police work if not more than many of their municipal counterparts.

    Retirement

    Just remember tier 3 and 4 pay 2/3rds gross salary after 30 years versus 1/2 after 20 NYSP&F, and most 20's are 20 and out. If your lucky to get the 1/69th extra service which maxes out at 59%. So after 20 years you can be going to work for half pay, or stay with sunyfor 30 and get out with 2/3rds. I know big cities 20 is enough unless you have rank. All new cops will be going into tier 3 NYSP&F which is minimum age to retire is 50 and you have to have at least 25 years. I never thought tier 4 would be a better choice.

    How much OT does the average SUNY Cop get? I know it depends on where you are, but an average idea would be a good start?

    You kind of answered your own question... really depends on where you are. Each University PD's budget comes from the individual school. The result is, some of the SUNY PD's are very well funded with new cars, equipment, lots of training, and abundant OT. The other side of the coin is that some of them are not. Even with minimal OT you'll still have trouble making less than $48K your first year.

    actually tier 4 is 60% at 30 years so 30/55 and 25/50 are both 2% a year for the first 25 years. The difference is being able to leave at 25/50 with no penalty instead of of needing 30/55 for no penalty. Also with 25/50 how much percent will they get for years past 25? still 2% a year? for some people 25/50 may still be an improvement depending on thier age/ time on the job. Also NYP&F has the disability for otj injury which could be big if you really get hurt. You guys who are working I am sure get this and people who are looking for a police job should think about it. Anything can happen

    1- pay first year $48K before ot ( probably little ot your first year due to academy)
    2- depending on location/bosses work conditions vary (like any other police job or regular job)
    3- full state benefits (medical,dental, pension etc)
    4- a felony,misdemeanor,violation, domestic, car accident, burglary, v.o.p. etc are still the same criminal or non criminal event no matter where it happens depending on WHERE you work for SUNY will affect what you have to deal with just like some precincts or sectors are less active than others

    I was under the impression that this new plan was only under consideration and was not being implemented yet...when will/did it become official and will/does it apply to all new police officers in NY state or just in the SUNY police system?
