Law Enforcement (LEO) Payscale in Wisconsin for 2022

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.

Wisconsin 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.

The CHICAGO-NAPERVILLE, IL-IN-WI General Schedule locality region applies to government employees who work in Chicago and surrounding areas. General Schedule employees who work within this region are paid 29.18% more than the GS base pay rates to account for local cost of living.
