Kinda sad but had to do it since I'm going to another agency. Will be weird without one for 6 months while I go through this other agency's academy.

Thank goodness for CHL

Damn J I saw that and thought he's one of the good guys I hope it's not for good. Glad to see it will only be temporary. Good luck with the new Department.

Do you have to get spritzed with OC all over again?

FUCK YES

Also, hit with the tasar for 2 seconds, and full contact defensive training with a former golden gloves boxer and some other guy that does UFC or something similar style fighting.

Sounds like an easy six months, Enjoy. This summer I switched departments, it was the best thing that I've done since starting over seven years ago in law-enfocement.

I retired in November of 2005.

I am waiting on my retirement credentials... so it is kinda weird having to walk around "naked" until they arrive. It was kinda weird turning in my badge and creds after 21 years at that agency! Bagging the Glock until the creds arrive is kinda uncomfortable at times after carrying for almost 30 years!

would it be out of line to ask where you're headed?

Wait until you retire. I didn't think of it at all until my last day and I stood there in front of the shield desk and had to hand it over for the last time. I had carried that shield for a lot of years. It was at my side for many many years and a lot of scrapes. It was shinny and new when I got it and now, like me, it had a lot of scars and scrapes. We had been through a lot together and now I just had to let it go. Needless to say it took me a few minutes to finally let it go and walk away.

Anyone ever see the movie "The Princess Bride"? Where at the end the guy describes how he is the dread pirate roberts but he actually got it from another guy and that guy got it from the guy before him and so he gave it to the Spaniard. So I think of my shield that way. Someone had it before me and someone else has it now. I was not the cop. The shield was the cop. I was just lucky enough to have been able to wear it for a while. I hope the new guy that has it sees the long history behind it and wears it with honor and safety for his time....

It is a weird feeling not being "on the job", anymore. When I left my last agency, I had a two + month break in police service without a shield or creds.
The hardest part was constantly watching my speedometer
