A Report on the State's Law Enforcement Salary Schedule (Salary Schedule C) for the 2024-2025 Biennium

November 2022


The State Classification Team, located within the State Auditor’s Office, surveyed local law enforcement departments that employ more than 1,000 commissioned law enforcement officers and compared the State’s direct compensation for law enforcement positions paid in accordance with Salary Schedule C to the direct compensation paid by those local law enforcement departments.

To maintain market competitiveness, salary rates for Salary Schedule C would need to be adjusted, using the methodologies specified in Texas Government Code, Section 654.037(b).
