Oh, to be a cop in Boston

The city's highest paid employee, a police officer, made $403,000 last year - $58,600 in overtime, $121,900 for police detail work, and a one-time retroactive check for $92,500 that he received last year after an arbitrator ordered the city to give detectives a hefty pay raise over a six-year period. His regular pay was about $92,500. His boss made $245,300, the mayor $175,000. Twenty-two other policemen made over $300,000. More than 500 detectives made between $200,000 and $300,000. Almost all of the top 100 earners for the city were policemen.
