With National Police Week kicking off on May 12, the personal-finance website WalletHub has released its report on 2019’s Best & Worst States to Be a Police Officer.
In order to determine the best states to pursue a career in law enforcement, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 27 key indicators of police-friendliness. The data set ranges from median income for law-enforcement officers to police deaths per 1,000 officers to state and local police-protection expenses per capita.
