Grodnoking - you must think that all jews wear a Yarmulka/peyos/white shirt/black pants.

There may very well be jews on the Lakewood police force who (gasp) don't.
Yeah I was gonna say you probably mean frum but that in itself has multiple descriptions

If there are any they are a lot farther removed than no white shirt/black pants
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Not very high, iirc during training mid 20's or low 30's, and upper 30's / low 40's once you finish training. But that is not counting any overtime and government benefits.

This seems to be the complete LPD payroll.
http://m.bergendispatch.com/Public/PFRS2013/Agency.aspx?id=LAKEWOOD+TOWNSHIP+++++++++++++

Skimming it quickly the smallest salary I see is 47K.   
Being as they keep adding new officers how much lower can the starting pay be?
Go for it!
