Then it will increase to $60,000. Finally after 18 months of service you'll get $65,000. Your salary could increase by promotion.
The equipment police officers use depend on the situation. If there is a riot then they will use riot gear (helmet, shield, baton, mace, bullet proof vest, and hand cuffs). In a shooting like a school shooting then they would be armed with assault gear (hand gun or shotgun, grenades, helmet, and bullet proof vest).
We all know what car chases are (ex. GTA5). The real thing is that the person driving 100 mph on the road is risking his own life and the lives of others driving. Tactics to handle it is to cut it off, blow up the tires, shoot the driver, or let it drive until the car runs out of fuel.
