Here`s how much police officers make in every state
Protests have continued across the US and in some other countries over the death of George Floyd after Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin kneeled on his neck for over eight minutes.

Chauvin is now charged with second-degree murder, after previously charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. Three other Minneapolis officers involved have also been charged with "aiding and abetting murder," according to NBC News.

  • Protests that started in Minneapolis on May 26 have continued across the US over the death of George Floyd after a police officer kneeled on his neck for almost nine minutes.

  • Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, we made the above map showing what the typical police officer makes per year in every state and DC.

  • As with many occupations, pay for police officers tends to be higher in more urbanized and coastal states and lower in smaller and more rural states.
