Costs for staff to direct traffic seem high

About traffic patrols at the Fauntleroy dock: Why so expensive? Granted, I’m unschooled in public policy, but $71,000 a year for 21 hours a week for a ferry employee or $300,000 a year for a police cadet seems like a lot! Does this job pay that much (if so, I’m in the wrong line of work), or is the extra money needed to manage them?
