The police are the public and the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence. - Sir Robert Peel

Love all, trust a few. Do wrong to none - William Shakespeare Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet.- James Mattis It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived. - Lt. Gen. George S. Patton
As for what comes next... the world is your oyster! What have you not had the chance to get into up to now, that you've been curious about or attracted to?
When my Dad retired, he and Mom moved to Florida, where the flying weather was consistently better than our hometown's weather. First, they built their dream home. One aspect of that home was a two-car garage, although my family never had two cars at one time. Half of the garage was set up as a workshop. First he built a sailboat. That project helped him get used to his tools and his new workshop. Then he built a two-seater open cockpit bi-wing plane.
Later, when his pilot's license was pulled because of a heart condition, he took up the piano.
I remember him before retirement, keeping a countdown of how many years, months, weeks and days he had to go before retirement. It is not that he didn't like his job-- he did-- but it is a big world out there, and he was ready to explore it.
So again, I say: what do you want to explore?
