San Francisco isn't the nation's biggest city, and it's certainly not the most crime ridden. But that doesn't mean it can't have the country's highest-paid cop.
With a total pay of $321,577, San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr won top honors last year among the nation's police bosses. He also happened to be the highest-paid department head in San Francisco city government.
By comparison, Los Angles Police Chief Charlie Beck, whose city has a population roughly 10 times San Francisco's, makes $307,291. New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly brings home $205,180.
