San Francisco Chief Greg Suhr’s Salary Nation’s Highest, $321,577


San Francisco isn’t the nation’s biggest city, and it’s not the most crime ridden, but that doesn’t mean it can’t have the country’s highest-paid cop, says the San Francisco Chronicle. With a total pay of $321,577, San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr won top honors last year among the nation’s police bosses. He also happened to be the highest-paid department head in San Francisco city government. (The Chronicle cited no source.)

Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck, whose city has a population roughly 10 times San Francisco’s, makes $307,291. New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly brings home $205,180. Suhr is not surprised he’s at the top of the pay heap, given that San Francisco has “one of the best-compensated police departments in the country, in one of the most expensive cities in the country.”
