...and as I look around, I see plenty of people, no matter what their age or rank is, who cant wait to get out. I also see plenty of people who will die of old age in a patrol car or working a detail...they will never leave if they dont have to.

There are some shocking relics still strapping it on every day (or Reserving) and I find that I tend to like these people. I have met a number of antique cops I might not get along with real well but I have yet to meet one I dont like.
unfortunately in some departments when you get put on or get old enough to pull "desk duty" you get looked down upon or as something "lesser" then a patrol officer....Ive never thought that way when your old enough to be the guys fathers who are the "younger/new officers" I think you have earned your way to do just about anything you want and not be "looked down upon".

I think in some depts there is some stigma to desk/non patrol duty. Even though its something SOMEONE HAS to do..

Eh, I have noticed that no matter what choice you make in life>.< someone doesnt like it.

I've got 12 1/2 years as a probation officer, but I plan to test in 2014.
