North Wildwood - Overpaid police? Debating Philadelphia vs. Cape May County salaries isn't possible. New Jersey police and firemen contribute 40 percent-plus of their salaries to health care and pension costs. Their Philadelphia counterparts contribute 0 percent. Whatever top salary number you see, subtract 40 percent-plus off the top. New Jersey police and fire also do not qualify for social security and are solely reliant on their pension in retirement.
