As a law enforcement officer with DPS, you will become a member of the Peace Officer’s Retirement, Accident and Disability System (POR). POR is a traditional “defined benefit” pension plan that allows employees the opportunity to retire as early as 50 years of age and/or with up to 88% of their final average pay. Benefits grow throughout your POR-covered employment as your salary and years of service increase. Your retirement with POR will provide a lifetime benefit for you and for your family. POR benefits also offer financial protection for you and your family if the event of death or disability.
