Salary Study and Comparison

Due to the very much appreciated questions and comments regarding salaries for our deputy sheriffs, I felt it is prudent to provide you with factual information of area pay of similar rankings for comparison.  Please note this pay information is public record and does not take into account any employee benefits.  We did not study all benefits but it is fair to say that Livingston County is probably the lowest compensated of those in this group for retirement and the lowest or near the lowest with other employee benefits.

My disclaimer: This information is for educational purposes for the public as well as elected officials in our area.  It is not meant to be a symbol of displeasure for or about anyone, elected official(s), office or other organization.  I/we applaud those organizations which are financially capable and willing to better support, attract, hire and retain quality employees. 

The struggles for the Livingston County employees is not limited to just the Sheriff’s Office but also for all of our county employees.  I ask that you understand we have been and continue to be here for you now I am asking for you to be there for all of our Livingston County employees.   They are very good people.

Side note:  My opinion is that all our area law enforcement officers, county employees and Department of Correction’s staff are underpaid for the risks and issues they deal with each day.
