Benefits

Benefits (image)

California police jobs and LAPD Officers enjoy tremendous benefits, including flexible work schedules and generous vacation pay benefits.

Compressed Work Schedule

A compressed work schedule is available for many patrol and special assignment units. Officers who work on compressed schedules work the same number of hours but can have more consecutive days off, by working longer days. Depending on assignment, available schedules include three 12-hour days and four 10-hour days.

Health and Dental Plans

Excellent health and dental plans are available for Police Officers and their eligible family members/domestic partners. The City contributes to all plans.

Pension Plan

The City has an independent pension system to which both the employee and the City contribute. Additional information on the pension system may be found at http://www.lafpp.com/LAFPP/index.html

Deferred Compensation

Additional retirement financial planning can be accomplished through regular contributions to a deferred compensation plan. The funds deferred are not subject to State or Federal taxation until withdrawn.

Sick Leave and Disability Benefits

Sworn employees receive 12 days of 100 percent paid sick leave, five days at 75 percent, and five days at 50 percent, upon hiring and each year while employed. Employees may accumulate up to 100 days at 100 percent, 75 percent, and 50 percent paid sick leave. Employees are eligible for a service-connected disability retirement from the date of graduation from basic training.

Vacation and Holidays

Sworn employees receive 15 days of vacation per year after one year of service and 23 days per year after ten years. Every sworn employee also receives a total of 13 paid floating holidays per year; one day every four weeks.
