Dan Oates, Miami Beach's new police chief, will get $207,500 salary plus a $2,000 monthly housing allowance

Via the Miami Herald's Christina Veiga:
Miami Beach’s new police chief will be one of the highest-paid employees in the city.

Commissioners on April 30 approved Dan Oates as the Beach’s police chief. Oates will be paid $207,500 in salary. His five-year contract [embedded below] includes other perks, including a $2,000 monthly housing allowance, city car and an iPad.

Oates replaces outgoing Chief Raymond Martinez, who announced his early retirement in March. He pulled a $191,000 salary.


According to his contract, Oates will get $2,000 a month to offset housing expenses. He is required to live in the city — and his contract provides him with up to $20,000 in one-time moving expenses.

Additionally, the chief gets to use a city car, for which the city pays all gas and other expenses, and $100 per pay period for his cell-phone bill. The city will also give Oates a notebook computer and an iPad.

  1. I'll help the police chief, city attorney and manager out. A Calif. city declares Sriracha factory a public nuisance over fumes. Miami Beach has two nightclubs and towing operations that produce hundreds of calls to the city services. Most cities consider this a nuisance. The three highly paid employees can get together and work on that. I'll be interested to see what results they produce. Let the excuses begin.
