Congrats sir, great time to hang it up. It's never been worse. I'm newly promoted to CID, just glad to be off the streets. My dad asked me if Sgt. was next, I told him I doubt it. I will stay right here at this desk till I retire. I have zero desire to go back to the streets in any rank. Enjoy retirement, you have certainly earned it.

I'm seeing story after story of LE retiring / leaving...this past week had 200 leaving Seattle & another 200 out of Louisville. Let's hope this mood turns around soon as we need good young men & women wanting to get into the field.

You have definitely earned retirement! You will find some conflicts in not being around the people you have worked with over the years and no longer having the authority to address some jack wads, in and out of the agency.

I've found that I enjoy life more without the stress. I picked up bowhunting after retirement and enjoyed that for several years; also gave up golf due to arthritis. You'll wonder how you ever got things done around the house while working as it takes up most of my time now.

That beer is still available if you get to B/CS!

Congrats TVC, well deserved, thank you for your service. I'm over 18yrs in now, it will be a great feeling to hit 20, just knowing I can check out if I want to. Gonna try for as close to 10 more as I can, job is definitely getting harder every day for multiple reasons.

I really appreciate the thoughts.

Emotionally building up to my last day, I was worn out and crashed after I started this thread. I felt like I hadnít slept in days. Then to the pd to start turning in so much gear and pick up my retirement ID so I can continue to carry.

A friend (TBH member) called me a little while ago to ask a legal question and then asked if I had anything planned Thursday so maybe we could go fishing. Uhhhhhh....... no... or Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday........

Again, I really appreciate the comments.
