So I live in the bay area and am joining the police academy in August 2018. Its a 6 month course ending in Febuary 2019. Once I have a post certificate , I can apply to police agencies and start making bank. Anybody else doing the same ?

"Making bank"? Exactly how much do they pay police officers in San Francisco, and doesn't most of that just get gobbled up by the outrageous rents?

Starting salary for rookies is 83 k and 7 yrs later is 100k . But even with 83 k, you have to do mandatory overtime and that pushes the salary to 100 k. But SF / bay area is a money pitt, so ill be moving to sacramento and would commute 1 hour plus each way.

OK, quite good if you can stand the commute. 

The average house price in Sacramento is $318K. A $309K house w/ 4 bed, 2 baths will have a mortgage payment of $1592/mo incl taxes and insurance, or $19,104 per year.

Leaving you $80K for other stuff.

So, yeah, bank.

You plan to join the academy, or are already accepted?

So they have other Sikhs in the SF police, or you'd be the 1st?

Do they have a policy for Sikhs? (Like turban colors, placing insignia on turban, etc.?)

Pretty sure there are plenty of punjabis in the police force in Yuba / Sacramento area , might be some in SF as well . They can wear religious gear. I haven't been accepted yet, I will do the pellet b exam in june and passing that , I will self sponsor myself for the police academy in Coyote Valley , San Jose.
