have to keep up with Firefighters!

Rick is 53 , works the streets and can still take down the bad guys, kick in a door, and keeps up in foot pursuits, boy does he have stories to tell.

He is 31 years on the job, could retire in 12 days, but COULD doesn't hold much water when there are bills to pay, besides, he'd drive me nuts! :P

My brother has been a town cop for a long time, involved in SWAT and good stuff like that. He did snag me going through town a bit fast. Gave me a choice take a warning or he told Mom. I took the warning.... :rolleyes:

My son is a cop in Ft. Worth.

I don't think police officers can retire now until they've been on an episode of COPS!

I'll have to vote twice to cover it... Won't let me select two categories, or three. Years ago, I was an unpaid aux deputy, before I was a volunteer firefighter. I retired last year from my former city, and volunteered there for some years writing accessible parking tickets.

Oh, and boykid is a cop in Ft Collins, CO. Not pertinent here, but parental pride being what it is, I gotta say he has been put in for their department's Distinguished Service Medal for his work with at-risk kids, which includes running a summer camp for 13-16 year olds, on his own time. We be lucky; we get to hang around and try to be useful for the camp. PK is the kids' drug controller. I keep the gennies and refers running. Gennies run only during the day, BTW!

Little pic there is from the camp area.

Wes

Guess they coulda named her Wesley! Weslina? Wesleyann? ha! ha! that girl will spend the rest of her life explaining her name, kinda like the skier Peekaboo. I knew a gal named MYOWN, when she was born after 4 boys, her father held her and said, "I finally have my own little girl.)
what an impressive career! way cool!( I won't go near a helicopter, 2 biggest unexplainable fears in life: Bears and Helicoptors.)

Well, as you all know from my screen name, I did not go into the family business. My Dad did 30 years on one of the local PD's, and retired a Sgt. My late FIL was a retired NYPD Capt.

If you watch the movie the NYPD's 41st Pct. "Fort Apache, The Bronx" with Paul Newman and Ed Ansner, in one scene, the Capt is holding Roll Call, and there is a chaulk board in the background, my FIL handwriting is all over the board. They filled that at the 40th Pct. in the Bronx, and he was the C.O. there at the time.

Spend enough time with either one, and the "unexplainable" goes away.
