New York City police officers are actually benefiting from the plague of protests that have engulfed the city.

Officers have raked in “several million dollars” in overtime pay guarding the city from protests after grand jury decisions in the Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases, according to the New York Post.

“If [the protesters] want to pay me so I can make sure all my Christmas bills are paid, that’s fine with me,” one officer told the Post.

“It’s a good time of year to get it,” another said.

Some cops are working 16-hour shifts to cover the protests, but few are complaining, the Post reported.

Many officers were pulled into Manhattan from other boroughs to follow the rabble-rousers, collecting time-and-a-half pay, with some already banking $1,000 or more, according to the Post.

“A lot of cops are going to make a lot of money this holiday season,” a veteran official told the Post. “There’s no question about that.”

Look at it like a Christmas bonus. Or hazard pay.
