I have lived in Philadelphia most of my life, i am the son of a retired police officer, I have family and friends that are currently on the Police Dept, I work with two retired police officers, and this is what I gather from them....Most of the senior police officer have spent 20+ years living in Philadelphia, their kids are grown or growing and probably are more interested in a retirement place than moving to the suburbs and paying school taxes for schools they won't use, and it will be a tough sell to their teenagers! If the retirement numbers stay on course then there shouldn't be a mass exit from the city. As for the younger police officers with young children, they may be able to find better schools in the suburbs but will they be able to pay triple the overall property taxes plus the hour commute ($4 a gal) into work?
time will tell but most of the cops I know don't have a plan on vacating as soon as possible
