My cousin works for BRPD. Between overtime and extra duty he makes over 100k a year. It runs him ragged some days but I can't say much negative about someone that wants to better their families life by working for extra money.
I have a feeling the deputy doesn't want to live on his base salary either.
My pawpaw was an officer for the BRPD as well and worked himself to the bone to provide a comfortable home for his four daughters, my mom being one of them, and he still went really high up the chain of command in his career. He's one of the finest men I'll ever have the privilege of knowing.
