Are UCPD the 99%?

So… how much do UCLA’s police make?

2010 data, from http://ucpay.globl.org/ (most recently available)
2009 salary was often higher than 2010 salary due to overtime pay, in large part due to policing of protests.  Some police in 2010 still earned over $20,000 in overtime pay.  UC Irvine officer Chon (who was at UCR) led the 261 UCPD officers with $59,496.89 in overtime pay (about $143,000 total).

Officer salaries: $3,801,467.20 total, $90,511.12 average
Brass salaries: $2,144,192.50 total, $119,121.81 average
Total payroll cost for gun-carrying police: $5,945,659.70 (excludes dispatch and staff, and operating costs)

Average salary of a UCLA librarian: $74,533.20 (all have advanced degrees,many of whom have 20+ years of experience and have maxed out the pay scale)
Average salary of a UCLA lecturer: $41,811.38 (nearly all have Ph.Ds; this includes part-time net salaries, average FTE salary is $70,838.40 and average appointment 57.5%)
The UCLA PD payroll could fund 80 additional mid-scale librarians or 84 additional full-time mid-scale lecturers.  In reality this would be about 120 of either given that the pay scale starts around $45,000 for both.  There are currently about 90 librarians and 250 full-time lecturers (or equivalent) at UCLA.  Hiring this many lecturers would allow between 750-1000 additional courses to be taught annually.

UCLA PD Brass: top 19%
UCLA Lecturers: bottom 39%

  1. I think it is ridiculous to even try to compare officer funding to seeing how many additional librarians or lecturers could be hired…as a previous employee of UCLA I have the utmost respect for UCPD and all they do to provide a safe environment for Campus and surrounding area. While being attacked by a transiant in the Village I called for UCPD not a librarian. While someone was breaking into my bedroom window I called for UCPD not a lecturer. They
    have A roll and a purpose at the Caps

    • Roll and purpose at the campus. Let them get paid for the risk they take. I assume people want to send their kids to safe schools UC system needs to pay for the professionals they hire not a mall cop. There is real crime on and near college campuses,real cops cost money. Kudos to UCPD for the job they do.
