Where I’m at and grew up in Philly, all the cops used to live in my neighborhood. They used to have to live within city limits and my neighborhood is as close to Bucks County as you can physically get and still be in Philly. Once they changed the rule and let cops move out of the city, they ironically all sold their houses to Chinese and Russian flippers from New York who brought in a lot of renters. The neighborhood is fine in terms of safety, but there are a lot more drugs and a large portion of people are letting their property just go to shit because they don’t own it.
I applied to a large city Pd after I got out of the military and finished college. I went through most of the process at the top of the list. Then I realized what my base pay was and where I’d be able to afford to live and noped the fuck out. The shitty school district, high crime areas.While the suburban departments in my area pay almost 80-90k to start some with no residency restrictions and benefits out the ass.Took a long hard look and just said there are better ways to serve the community and found a different way.
