Idaho Isn’t a Great Place to be a Cop
Some people may believe Idaho has too many cops on streets and roads.
Pay may be another factor in the low ranking.
As it turns out, Idaho has a ratio of police to population among the lowest in the country. According to WalletHub, the state is one of the worst for law enforcers, coming in at a dismal 48th of 50 states and the District-of-Columbia.
Pay may be another factor in the low ranking. It would appear some neighboring states are more willing to reward officers of the law.
Do you believe we've got enough law enforcers in Idaho?
Would you be willing to pay additional taxes for pay raises and to increase policing ranks?
