About Ithaca, New York

The valley in which Cayuga Lake is located is long and narrow with a north-south orientation. Ithaca is at the southern end (the "head") of the lake, but the valley continues to the southwest behind the city. Originally a river valley, it was deepened and widened by the action of Pleistocene ice sheets over the last several hundred thousand years. The lake, which drains to the north, formed behind a dam of glacial moraine. The rock is predominantly Devonian and, north of Ithaca, is relatively fossil rich. Glacial erratics can be found in the area. The world-renowned fossils found in this area

Getting the Message out and Helping the Community Understand

ITHACA, N.Y. – The Police Benevolent Association last signed a contract with the City of Ithaca in It has been six years since that contract expired, and still the city and union have been unable to reach a new agreement. As the city prepares its budget, conflict has escalated between the two parties.

The IPBA has accused the city of thwarting contract negotiations to avoid giving police officers pay raises.

“The City’s goal has been clear &#; despite its financial ability to do so, it has been evident that their intent is to prevent IPBA members from receiving fair and reasonable compensation for the hard work they perform and danger they face on an hour-to-hour, day-to-day basis,” IPBA President Eric Doane wrote in a press release.

On the other side, the city has accused the union of trying to bully its way into a contract that is beyond the city’s means.

“(The PBA has) made unreasonable demands on the City and its taxpayers of a sort not reflected in any of the City’s other labor contracts… This aggression and stonewalling by PBA leadership has undermined the interests of the officers they represent,” reads a statement posted by Mayor Svante Myrick on Facebook.

Understanding police pay

Police pay is at the heart of the dispute. Both sides have cited figures about officer salaries, overtime and benefits in their campaigns. To cut through the confusion, here&#;s a rundown of where police pay stands.

Salaries have been stagnant for the Ithaca Police Department since , the last year covered by the PBA contract. A first-year officer joining the department in would have earned the same salary as a first-year officer joining the department today: $44,

Nevertheless, many officers have gotten salary raises since in keeping with the contract&#;s terms. The last contract agreed to by the city and the IPBA sets fixed salary increases across an officer’s first four years of work.

A first-year officer who joined the department in and continued working would now earn $70, in base pay. That increase reflects fixed yearly raises as an officer moves from step one to step four of the salary schedule.

Sergeants are also paid on a step-based schedule, and promotion to lieutenant comes with a salary boost as well. In , the city approved funding for 52 police officers, 10 sergeants and four lieutenants.

Salary figures are not the same as an officer’s total pay as many officers make significant overtime earnings. Doane said via phone that Ithaca officers work about overtime hours per year, by his estimate. The city budgeted $, for police overtime pay in

Including overtime, median pay for officers in was about $93, Both Doane and Myrick said this number accurately reflects median pay for sworn officers represented by the PBA, including officers, sergeants and lieutenants. Excluding the chief and deputy chiefs, half of Ithaca officers earn more than $93,, while half earn less.

Doane said the $93, median reflects excessive demand for overtime work. Median pay is much higher than base salary for the department&#;s 55 unranked officers, he said, because they work so many overtime hours.

Doane said the union wants higher staffing levels so officers can work fewer overtime hours. The department &#;desperately needs more people &#; officers are sick of running short on the roads, of doing two or three different duties. We&#;re getting run ragged,&#; he said.

Meanwhile, Myrick, reached by phone Thursday, stressed that the $93, median reflects pay, not total compensation. To estimate total compensation, he said he would add $24, in city contributions to health insurance and $15, in contributions to pension accounts.

Myrick said Ithaca&#;s officers are &#;the best compensated officers for a city our size for a long, long way around.” He said is the first year they were not the city&#;s highest paid employees; they were out-earned by firefighters.

The city and union are bound by a confidentiality agreement, so neither side can make public their exact offers or demands.

Myrick characterized raises offered by the city as &#;significant&#; and said they would restore police officers&#; status as the highest-paid city employees.

We have a vested interest in bettering the community because it is our community too.

Doane characterized union demands as &#;reasonable&#; and said a committee &#;ran the numbers to make sure it&#;s something the city can afford.&#;

Funding the feud

The IPBA and the city have accused each other of squandering money on the contract fight.

“The community should be aware that the City has spent over $, of taxpayers’ funds on a legal safari, led by privately retained counsel, to fight our contract,” the press release from Doane reads.

Doane said by phone, &#;It&#;s very frustrating when I see elected officials spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on frivolous legal action &#; I&#;m extremely frustrated for the taxpayers.&#;

Myrick agreed that $, sounds like a reasonable estimate of fees the city has paid to retain an attorney to oversee labor contracts since He said these retainer fees would have been paid whether or not the city was at odds with the IPBA, however.

“That’s money we would spend whether we were fighting them or not,” Myrick said.

Myrick questioned how much money the union had spent on their own legal fees and public relations campaign. Doane explained that the IPBA pays a fee to retain legal services through the New York State Union of Police Associations. The union would pay those fees whether or not they were fighting the city.

The union&#;s public relations campaign, Doane said, has come at a significant expense. &#;We felt we had to (hire a PR firm) to get our message out, to help the public understand what&#;s going on,&#; he said.

Though both sides said they are eager to reach a deal, the city and union remain at loggerheads.

Now we will use this chance to reveal to you the typical salary of dissimilar law enforcement officials and show how they can earn more.

Location Matters

If someone is located in an urban area, that person is expected to make more. On the flip side, someone assigned to a small town might hardly earn even if he or she is in New Jersey.

Work Experience

Just like other jobs, if you have more experience being a cop, you get paid more. As a police officer, your salary is likely to increase about % if you have about 20 years of experience over your fellow candidates. The mean median in the U.S., which takes into account the salaries of cops of all ages, is around $49,

Every one of these titles carries with them a substantial salary increase. The following is a depiction of what each rank is paid in relation to the others: Patrol Office < Detective <Supervisor < Chief < Lieutenant < Commissioner. With experience taken into consideration, the commissioner’s salary is the highest, with the commissioner earning an average salary anywhere between $71, or even $80,

Ithaca Police Unit

As specified some time earlier, another element that determines your income is the division you are working in. For instance, if placed in the narcotics unit, you pay might be more than a regular patrol officer. Or if you are in homicide, you might earn a hefty amount too. A forensic science technician may earn something around $55, (while a Sheriff&#;s patrol may earn $57, in the same scenario). Probation officers earn just a little bit less compared to that of forensic technicians.

Working Hours

Working Benefits

Many people do not mind the salary that a cop gets mostly because of the benefits that they receive. One of the biggest benefits is that of pension. Conventionally, some are obligated to gain no less than 15 years of experience working in the force in advance of getting a pension. Therefore, a person may begin early and then stop working by the age of 40 to obtain a pension and be employed elsewhere.

You additionally gain respectable healthcare insurance to aid yourself should you get incapacitated or experience the ill effects of some disease, which in the case of law enforcement officers is rather normal.

Another unofficial perk is that you can get a lot of free food and drinks when you are in uniform. Be that as it may, this accompanies inquiries of ethical quality and it is dependent upon your ethical compass if it will permit you to get such advantages. The same goes for any relationships you may have built with folks during your time as a cop.

You likewise, obviously, do get the chance to meet some well-known individuals while attempting to shield them or furnishing them with security.

The occupation of a law enforcement officer is tough and the compensation isn’t substantial. However, if you have a potent sense of fairness and the longing to protect folks, then this profession may suit you. Moreover, it is a very respectable job, which lets you have a secure retirement and gives you healthcare benefits. What more might a person be able to request in the wake of sparing the day and being announced a hero according to a few?

How To Become A Ithaca Police Officer

Educational Requirements

The education qualifications of a cop aren’t a lot as stated previously. In most instances, they only need a high school diploma. Be that as it may, now and then, a minimum of two years university course completion is required. This implies a GED or an associate’s degree is all you need. If you want to pursue some other division like cyber crime or forensics, you may have to go in for higher education.

As shown above, the profession of being a law enforcement officer is somewhat demanding, and so are its necessities. One prerequisite that was not stated previously is self-restraint and respect for rules. They require you to obey every instruction of your commanding officers, whenever they issue one. Now that you know how tough the job and training can be, only one question remains: Are you up for the challenge?

What Does A Ithaca Police Officer Do?

People swiftly voice their unpleasant opinions about law enforcement officers. But they would be surprised to know the depth of a police officer’s duties. Cops receive arduous training in order to hold the position they do. The responsibilities of a cop chiefly depend on the region in which they are found. It also depends on their specialization. Nevertheless, lower frequencies of lawbreaking in areas outside urban centres means that there are few opportunities for someone to specialize in one field. Let us see some of the duties of an average police officer.

Patrolling Ithaca

The chief obligation of a law enforcement officer is to uphold law and order. They patrol the area they are assigned and look for people who are breaking the law. It is their duty then to make these individuals recognize that they are violating the law or apprehend them. If necessary they can likewise request reinforcements and apprehend the suspect who is creating the disturbance. Therefore, as a result, a cop is likewise obligated to respond to calls by other cops while out on patrol, even if the officer who is requesting help isn’t in his assigned zone. They relinquish the prisoner to court and let the court decide how to sentence the offender.

Provide Security

Many public and private events are threatened daily by some terrorists or some other criminals. Police officers are then supposed to secure the area and look for lawbreakers at these events. One some occasions, they must secure a VIP or a number of people. On other occasions, they must secure a courthouse or other prominent places. They are sometimes required to escort a criminal from or to a jail.

Investigate Ithaca Crime

Several law enforcement officers are obligated to probe the instances of lawbreaking they discover. For instance, on the off chance that they come upon a homicide, they should attempt to discover who did it and how it happened. Or if they come across any drugs they are supposed to investigate its source. They are supposed to pack all proof that they have determined is important, and declare it to their bosses or to the crime scene investigation department for more examination. Every so often, to acquire proof, they may tell untruths or trick a person of interest to get an admission of guilt. An admission of guilt is the greatest evidence any officer can have.

Protect Ithaca Citizens

One of the chief obligations of a law enforcement officer is helping the populace. They are supposed to prevent them from any harm. To do so, they are permitted to wound or shoot a potential attacker who may injure the police or the populace. As a consequence, they are permitted to carry firearms. They have the option of calling for reinforcements if the situation deteriorates. Sometimes they might also have to deal with explosives and if possible, disarm it themselves.

Traffic Control

A few officers are obligated to modulate the stream of traffic in the event that traffic lights stop operating. They should make sure that cars move seamlessly and do not smash into each other or instigate any other mishap. They are likewise required to record any traffic violations and notify the court of the offender. From time to time, they are expected to take care of parking violations.


There are usually several divisions in a specific police department. These act separately. These may be a special operations division, SWAT, the forensics department, serial murder investigation, or anything similar. Thus, the duty of a police officer largely depends on which unit he is working with. These divisions like SWAT, the forensics division, serial murder investigation, or anything comparable may be specialized to play one role.

Reading Rights

One of the most basic duties of a police officer is to read any suspect they are arresting or detaining their rights. They are required to call a legal counsellor for the captive regardless of the possibility that he or she can&#;t manage the cost of one. They are likewise supposed to operate inside the boundaries of the law and make certain that they themselves aren’t disregarding it. Each and every captive must be notified of why they are being apprehended. If an individual isn’t being taken into police custody, then he or she has the option to leave, and it is the duty of a police officer to allow him/her to do so.

Filing Paperwork

The work of a law enforcement officer is not generally perilous (or energizing) as you may believe. The records department handles all the case files and maintains them along with the evidence. To help the records division, each cop must complete specific paperwork following every arrest or transfer. They are obligated to write a thorough report of each incident, cataloguing all the proof they have collected. They likewise must complete warrants and have a judge sign them prior to taking dynamic actions.

Working Hours

The number of hours cops spend working each day changes based on the case they are working on. If there is no current case that he or she is working on, then they may go home at the prescribed time In unrelated scenarios, they are required to follow up on leads until their thirst for knowledge is quenched for the day. Now and then, they have no choice but to sit down writing up reports way into the night or they may have to conduct surveillance on a suspect. As a law enforcement officer, they must be sure that their conclusions aren’t grounded in perceived biases like ethnicity or sex. They should remain objective. Similarly, they are expected to honor the religious views of a person of interest, even while they are being taken into custody.

The tasks and responsibilities of a cop go on and on. This is just a small cross section. Now that you have knowledge of all of this, I am sure you hold law enforcement officers in more esteem now. So, if you plan on ever becoming one, you know what you will have to do.
