Congrats on your retirement. I've been out a little over a year now. I Just started looking for a part time job myself. Enjoy.

Congratulations for "makin it out". I retired in July 2006 and took the rest of the year to adjust. Be prepared for a little letdown if you've been "in" for awhile and take the time to adjust and decompress. Enjoy and welcome to the "club".

You lucky dog, I have just under three years left then I am out. Like you I want something that has nothing to do with Police work. Looking for something on the "quiet" side.

I'm five years out, and it took me a LOOONNNGGGG time to decompress. I was rolling around on the ground with the animals the LAST NIGHT before handing in my papers.

Long happy and healthy retirement to you, sir.

15 days and a wake-up!!!! The wife is getting sick of me shouting "On Rappel!" when the alarm goes off every morning...

Decompress? I've been decompressing for a couple of years now...

Nice job, Nick! Truly well done. I am counting the minutes to May 10, at 1700 hours Pacific Time, when I walk out the door for the last time. It's been an interesting 34-years.

There is a real benefit to being just over two months from retirement. I don't have to be nice to buttheads anymore. I tell them what I think and then invite them to call and complain. Of course, I'm the guy they get when they call.

Good Luck Nick. My brief work in LE was almost 30 years ago. I changed over to state healthcare and just submitted my disability papers 10 days ago. I am on leave now and trying to adjust while I wait. I don't miss the hassle but I miss the good work and the good people. God bless you for your service.

You are never really retired! You have seen and done things that changed your life permanently. You are defined by who you became over those years of service. You can never leave like in "Hotel Califronia"! You see things other people don't because you were trained to do so, your eyes won't stop seeing. You may not enforce laws anymore but you'll see them being broken. You can't just walk away no matter how hard you try...
Good luck and thank you for your service!

You will love retirement. I do after retirement from Corrections with 30 years although not all of it there. I have a new word I love which I never really understood before. The word is "Pittle". I do whatever I want as long as I'm enjoying myself. You'll hopefully have the time to do things right without being in a hurry making mistakes and will be able to think of better ways to do things. I hope you just have to work part-time to make ends meet. Also enjoy shooting again. Get a Marvel 22 Conversion Unit so it doesn't become to expensive and hurt older hands.

Congratulations!

It'll be 16 years for me in less than a month.

CONGRATS!

I aspired to become a door-greeter at Sam's Club when I retired from the military. I wasn't disabled enough so I became a cop.

Although I am not a leo (retired electrician) .Two things happen when you retire, you loose all your free time and you get a medical education you really didn't want. Still retirement is better than going to work every day. Good luck.
