that whole "immune to prosecution" and "can do whatever you want, drive how you want, and never face consequences" thing is a pretty nice perk, though

unlikely: that whole "immune to prosecution" and "can do whatever you want, drive how you want, and never face consequences" thing is a pretty nice perk, though


Besides, that whole hundreds of miles of barren desolate wastelands makes it easier to make the dead midget transvestite hooker just ....disappear.

ISP Colonel Ralph Powell says only those with the highest moral standards need apply.

Ralph, how much money will it take for you to overlook my moral standards?

Subby, please. I make 15K in a good year and live in Kansas. That would be an upgrade.

Low cost of living - how does that work?

FYI - 35k buys a lot in Taterland.

Last I heard Idaho has an open container law that allows you to have one open container.

The problem is, much of Idaho isn't cheap.  Coeur d'Alene is pretty darned expensive, and Boise isn't exactly Alabama cheap.  Sun Valley is one of the most expensive places in the country to buy a home, too.  Now, granted, there *are* parts of Idaho that are relatively inexpensive, but the cost of living in Idaho, particularly Northern Idaho, has gone up considerably in the last 10 or so years.

2013-07-02 06:46:40 PM
I'm assuming that $35,000 just covers actual take-home.  There's also other highly tangible inducements such as a top-tier health insurance package for yourself and your family, a per-diem to cover food/gas, and approx $100,000 in small nonsequential bills that you can steal from meth dealers.
 
2013-07-02 06:49:46 PM
Drive hundreds of miles?? Geeez. What you think the department is made out of money!!!!?? A long range patrol every 3 days will suffice. Otherwise short range speed traps for 2 days to make the money needed to see if there are any stranded motorists on the third day.


/Unless of course its dark and 3am and lets see how fast this police car will go.

Looks pretty desolate to me.

How many good restaurants do you see there?  How many theatres?  Nightclubs?  Bars?

Because I don't see ANY in that picture.

You're not touching a decent small house in Boise or Meridian for under $220K.  More if you look in Eagle.  Sure you can buy in Nampa or Caldwell for $120K but then you're living in Nampa or Caldwell.  Kuna isn't bad if you like nothing to do.  Forget Emmett.  That's 38 miles just to get to a decent bar.

Sudlow: The $35K is starting pay. http://www.isp.idaho.gov/hr/trooper_info/compensation.html


That and there's the pension thing.  Work for 20 years, retire at 41 at 80% pay.

Add that to the base and it's a pretty good wage for a HS grad.

Don't forget to add that getting around anywhere requires a vehicle.  The areas that are relatively inexpensive aren't going to have decent access to the internet.  Hope you like BSU football...

/not too expensive in some of the neighboring  areas
//too much urban sprawl

I met a jerk-off on a greyhound bus trip who claimed to be an Idaho State Trooper, on his way to a security job interview in Reno.  He was the most bigoted, loud-mouthed, narcissistic, douche-bag I've ever encountered in my life.  I assumed he was lying about being a state trooper, but still I wonder.

Yep, that's the place.  As long as you stare at the water and pretend not to notice the sage brush next to you, everything's golden!  Well, maybe not golden, but at least not drab brown.

You have high standards. I'm looking for a house in Boise right now, and I'm looking at 80-100k, because I'm poor. Old, small houses on the Bench, but perfectly livable for a single guy.
