I just wanted to start this thread to see if anyone had any more information on officer cost of living. Any information I can find is pretty old so I'm assuming is somewhat out of date. I was wondering how much rent and food cost, both during training and after, and was there anything that you were expected or recommended you buy? like extra equipment? I understand that a lot of this depends on personal situations and that I should be focusing on getting in first. However, it is still a job like any other and I was curious as to how much beer money I would have every month.
