My condolences.

After 35 years of service, 67 years of age is way too old to be a cop.

From what I was told he was a retire/rehire. TX DPS is big on rowing now and made it required PT. He got to 1600 meters and then had a heart attack on the rowing machine.

I have a different view...

I don't know the specifics, but if that's what he wanted to do, then more power to him. There may have been limitations on duty, but he has a lot of experience to share.

On a related note,I remember reading a story about a retired Army dentist who volunteered to be reactivated for active duty and went to Afghanistan. He was something like 82!

I was going to mention about that and held back.

A few years back DPS got some funds/deal with Homeland Security/Border Patrol for extra support. It was like 500 to 1000 Troopers. I know a number of local Troopers that retired and rehired with the same rank and area. Now they were good in there day, but like most in their 50's are not at their prime. They also had the new PT tests (a few options IIRC based on age). It had a lot of the older worried, but they liked the deal they got to leave and come back.

I wonder if this will make any changes to what they were/are doing. Boxing had the "knock out" taken away.

I doubt it, I think DPS "fancys" themselves a bit too much and will continue with this, all the while cutting out shortened classes for laterals.
