I couldn't believe my eyes when I read that an East Hampton Village police officer who was caught in a "compromising position" with a female companion earned $117,025 a year ["Village cop caught in tryst resigns," News, June 11].

I guess this kind of compensation for the local police is just pocket change to the rich folk living in the Hamptons. Clearly they are not getting their money's worth.
