Wisconsin was ranked 41st in a study showing which of the 50 states and the District of Columbia are the best places for police to work. 

The analysis measured numerous qualities that define police friendliness, including mean annual wages ($63,380 being the national average for police officers), retirement and health benefits, tuition aid and access to fitness programs. Police death rates and police community relations were also among the 27 metrics that were part of the study.

Wisconsin’s total score was 40.73 out of 100. The state ranked 40th on “Opportunity and Competition,” 40th on “Job Hazards and Protections” and 23rd on “Quality of Life.”
