I my regret asking, but:what makes you think I'm in Chicago?

OP, congratulations! I retired in February of this year.

It took me a good month to get over the "playing hooky" feeling. I suspect it'll take longer for you.

Are you going to do one of those Youtube videos of your last radio call so everyone can remember you crying?

Good for you!

Now figure out what you want to do next and enjoy your freedom to do whatever makes you happy.

Welcome to the busy side of life. Buy a new set of fishing gear.

I'm in my 27th year. Struggling to reach a full 30 to max out my retirement. Wife is in TMRS also, she's sitting at 24years. Getting really hard to go to work everyday. I really need to stop looking at retirement estimates. I'll never retire if I keep doing the "If I just stay one more year" thing.... Congratulations bud, you earned it in our line of work...
Link Posted: 10/15/2018 11:12:01 AM EDT
I'm almost 2 weeks late, but I didnt see this until now...

Congrats Brother! Enjoy the good life!

I aspire to be a retired cop some day!

Holy shite! That's what I read as well.

Congrats brother

Congrats, now you have the time to do what you want without having to take a vacation day. I went after 26 yrs all in uniformed patrol ops and there has not been a day that I regret since I left. Funny though I got two phone calls last week asking me how to do things at the old place and I've been gone for 18 months already.
Link Posted: 10/15/2018 8:04:43 PM EDT
So I retired at 2100(not in 2100, thank God) and was at the new job at 0800.

I'm an SRO at an elementary school.

OMG, my smile muscles are cramped and sore. I've been hugged more times in the last 2 weeks than in the rest of my life combined.

And I haven't even got a pension check yet...

Congrats! I retired on disability after 40 years as an officer in the US Merchant Marine a year ago.I wish I had gone out sooner while I was in better shape.
