California police officers are the highest paid in the nation
When we compiled the data, we found that police officer salaries range from about $35,000 per year to $100,000 per year, with a national average of $64,490.
California ranks first in both actual salary ($100,090) and adjusted salary ($87,491).
To gather the raw data for this analysis, we pulled salaries from the May 2017 Occupational Employment and Wages report, released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics for Police and Sheriff’s Patrol Officers. We then obtained Regional Price Parities (RPP), which measure the difference in price level between states and metro areas, from the Bureau of Economic Analysis. The adjusted salary numbers were calculated by dividing the annual mean salary by the price parity. The adjusted salary represents purchasing power based on the cost of living in each state.

Which California Cities Have the Lowest Car Theft Rates?
What's the 411 on Car Theft?
Car theft has trended downward in the past ten years—especially in these cities—thanks to city-wide surveillance, anti-theft devices, and neighborhood watch programs. As car theft evolves, though, it’s just as important to keep car owners up to date on common sense safety and preventative measures (such as not leaving a key fob in the car).
Traditionally, car thieves targeted older vehicles because outdated technology made them easy for thieves to break into without triggering alarms. But other criminals—hackers—go for newer vehicles. It’s easy for hackers to steal or take control of connected or self-driving cars since their computer-based systems have loopholes.
We analyzed motor vehicle thefts per 1,000 people using 2018 FBI Crime data in cities with a population above 25,000 that accurately reported their data (according to the FBI).
