Today is my last day as Police Officer. I am Blessed and thankful for what it has provided for me and my family. It has been a long journey with things experienced that I could have rather done without in my lifetime, but I am proud of why we do it. I just want to say thank you to @RiverDave for the entertainment and insight that RDP has provided me over the years. Long nights in the office, yes RDP helped pass the time. My first Desert Storm street party, Dave kept us hydrated at the booth. My first Inland Empire RDP meet up, what a blast and pleasure to meet members in person. My last trip to Havasu when I stopped by RDP to get some SWAG, the blonde lady asked if I was a cop because I had bought some blue line flag t-shirts. I told her yes, and she was upset I didn't tell her before I paid because she said Dave would be mad she didn't give me a free t-shirt 😂 I really know the majority of the members on here back the blue, including Dave and I am thankful for that support. Especially in these times. God Bless all our First Responders on this site and may you have the courage to continue to keep us safe!

As for retirement, don't worry, I have two kids in college so I start my new job Monday😁 Hopefully I can share a beer some day with the many great members on this site!

Your gonna love it! You'll miss certain parts (usually from your younger more exciting years) but you wont miss the BS and the politics. Takes some getting used to being paid only once a month lol, but its nice to finally get what you earned through all the shit you went through to get here. Congrats on a well deserved retirement, you made a difference now enjoy the fruits.

Well done sir and I thank you 👍

I'm often amazed when I read of yet another LEO on these boards. What's that make, like 20 now ??
I actually think there's more LEO than Sparkys, Solar, or HVAC types, although certainly not mechanics. ;)

It's especially surprising given the number of posts where inmates admit in writing to having or are currently committing fraud or other illegals acts.
Which generally receives affirmation and approval by the peer members, because the motivation is either principle, political or simply " I'm heading for the lake or river", all permissible and condoned excuses. 😂

As a sparky I know I cringe and toss the blanket over my head reading certain content, I can't imagine the internal conflict being a sworn officer might possibly encounter.

Best of luck to you and yours in your new endeavor(s). 👏
