Each week he was on the job last year, Metra Police Department Sgt. John K. Geraty would work his regular 40 hours and then, on average, put in another 38 hours of overtime.

His total pay last year as a cop with the Chicago and suburban commuter rail agency: $154,446, with more than half of that - $90,273 - for overtime.
