I was one of the first 300 certified.  My employer is not giving out any financial incentive for passing the exam as of yet. The department will reimburse the cost of the exam if the employee passes.

I was one of the first 500 back in March of 2018.  No raise came of it as was expected; many employers, and work unions, do not yet recognize certification.  I was not able to find any information about how many current CSPTs there may be, other than this older article from June of 2018:
