  • A Little Help, please?

    Well, I've been retired about 2 years now, joined the Reserves when I retired, figuring it would cure the "itch", but not quite. After a heart-to-heart with the wife she figured going back to work as a full-time LEO wouldn't be too bad so long as I was happy. SOOO, does anyone know of an agency (size doesn't matter) that's looking for a 30 year veteran that's dieing to work K9? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    What will this do to your retirement. Will it stop and you go back into the system until you retire again, or are you looking for an agency that is under a different pension system?

            I am sure this forum doesn't help at all either, makes the itch, itchier! I wish I knew of one. I am sure that there are plenty of small agencies that would love some experience in thier depts but that would mean a move for you. Try DPS.

              Well, that's the thing --- me & the wife want to move (too crowded here) so that's not an issue, hell, I'll even go out of state and having worked for a big & small Dept. I don't have a problem with either

                  Hemi- pack it in! Sir ,you've done the work-I'm sure you have the "itch",but there is sooo much to do and NOW you have "free time";unless you go to a tawny suburb,why put yourself back into the "muck"????!! I know you have skills ,and probably could be more effective,without the political /admin B.S. as an academy instructor,or in an investigations position(maybe with an insurance company,or a state specialized unit ) I've seen so many former instructors and seniors NOt live past 10 yrs after retiring ( one of my favorite Sgts got cancer and died 5 yrs after pulling the "pin") I hate to be negative,and I have enjoyed your comments and posts-even the advice you put out,but it seems that going out and "knuckledragging" is below you now.Maybe its just the way that my Dept and our sister dept treats older patrol officers( they idol worship "90 day wonder" cops who can't even spell "probable cause" over the older and more experienced)

                  good luck in whatever you do-but I'm sure your experience and skills are better used in higher positions,like what L-1 posted...........

                    Guys I appreciate all your advice & responses and yes, in some ways perhaps I am over the hill but when you've done something this long it's awfully hard to sit back. I don't feel my age, still work-out & run and generally have a good time. But LE was good to me & I'm thinking I'd like to carry on. Hell yeah, I'd take an admin job --- it's better than nothing!

                      30 years?

                      why not become an FTO and teach the younger folk?

                      That is a lot of knowledge that is worth its weight in gold.

                        What I wouldn't give for a few shift's worth of "teaching".

                        Hemi, I respect the hell out of your posts here on the forum and always look forward to your insight. I'm sure you'd make an invaluable asset to any agency that is smart enough to bring you on.

                        Good Luck.

                          Many in our dept retire and get rehired as "120 day wonders". They are assigned to the courts.

                          Other depts officers retire and come to ours to double dip.

                          You will be a cop until the day you die. Having that itch is not bad as we are programed from our date of hire. Doing something different after retirement is the key. Many grow their hair long and have full beards.

                          What DOAcop said was true..it's time to enjoy retirement..you certainly earned it. Many don't make the 5 year mark. We have diehards who will work until they fall down dead. Why not enjoy life?

                          Whatever you decide..I wish you well.
                          This profession is not for people looking for positive reinforcement from the public. Very often it can be a thankless job and you can't desire accolades, because those are not usually forthcoming. Just do your job to the best of your ability and live with the decisions you've made.

                              After my father in law retired from the fire department he got on with a local middle school and works security making $16/hr. He loves it, it keeps him busy and he gets the summers off. He lives in Sierra Vista which is where we (my wife and I) both hope to end up. Not too big, but still have everything you need. Like Flagstaff. I grew up in a town of 3500 people in NE AZ. I agree that it is too crowded here. That is why we like Maricopa. Once I start with DPS I will have no real reason to live the city. Here is the Sierra Vista website. Great place to retire and beautiful weather.
