Paper: 30 Pittsburgh officers made more than $100K off duty



Published: Thu, March 7, 2013 @ 12:55 p.m.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Thirty members of the Pittsburgh Police Bureau made more than $100,000 for off-duty security details over three years, including one lieutenant who earned nearly $261,000.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports today that a husband and wife also made more than $250,000.

The paper says the police Office of Special Events paid officers more than $17.4 million from Jan. 1, 2010, to Feb. 22, 2013. About two-thirds of the 850-member force work special details for events, businesses and construction projects.

The figures don’t include officers’ regular wages or overtime or money they make from separate jobs.

Former police Chief Nate Harper resigned last month after the FBI gathered boxes of records from police headquarters, and City Controller Michael Lamb announced an audit of the force’s special events office.

I hope the FBI gets to at least put an end to the corruption that seems to be prevalent in this police force. It is funny the mayor saw fit to not seek another term. He is probably in this up to his eyeballs. Let us hope that all the tyrants go to prison and lose all those cushy government benefits. Although I expect that they will all just retire and collect their pensions, Maybe though they will get what the Orie sisters got, just maybe.
