Law Enforcement (LEO) Payscale in Utah for 2013

The Law Enforcement (LEO) payscale is the federal government payscale used to determine the salaries of over 70% of federal civilian employees.

Like the General Schedule (GS) Payscale, under the LEO payscale an employee's base pay depends on two factors - the LEO Paygrade of their job, and the Paygrade Step they have achieved (depending on seniority or performance). This base pay is then modified based on a "Locality Pay Adjustment", which adjusts the LEO payscale based on cost-of-living in different areas within the United States.

Utah has one or more Locality Pay Adjustment areas with special locality pay adjustment rates. This page lists the locality-adjusted yearly LEO pay scales for each area, with starting pay for a LEO-1 broken down by county in the interactive map.

Rest of Utah Locality Adjustment: 14.16%

Utah has no cities or counties for which a special GS Locality Pay Adjustment is specified. Therefore, the generic "Rest of the United States" locality pay adjustment of 14.16% (shown in the table below) applies to all Law Enforcement jobs in the state.
