    Putting in my papers tomorrow after 28 years with current PD. 32 years total...and gonna be a Dispatcher with the local Sheriff's Office where I live just 10 minutes away. Going from a high stress liberal urban environment in charge of a crime scene unit to a nice rural area with way less hassles...and not in charge of squat:) Used to run fire and rescue so that part of it will be not too hard to learn. Separate retirements too..City to State. Looking forward to it!

    Good luck with the 'hen house' that dispatch usually is. Some of the women can be vindictive as all get out. :brickwall:

    Thanks Dragoon 44. You Sir are a true sage and wise man by the way...love your input. As for the hen house concerns...I am an old fart who has seen much...I will simply give any hen the silent treatment or tell them I refuse to join their drama club. It is really pretty drama free there from what some friends told me. Just 2 people on at once. We're talking small and low key as a rule.

    Yep. Gotta have a retirement ID card to join, a monthly check to belong, and a cranky demeanor to fit in!

    :fred:
     
  9. Congrats and best of luck with your new gig...Oh, don't forget to sit back and watch that well earned "check" hit your account every month...Boy, it feels good.....:wavey:

    Sweet. Always nice to get 2 checks. If I ever get hired with the state again and put in 3 years, I'll get 2 too.

    I think your transition to dispatch will be seamless.

    Have fun.

    I doubt it.

    He has a strong work ethic, isn't a holster sniffer, doesn't gossip endlessly, and lacks a 60 quart Igloo cooler 'lunch pail' to empty out at work every day.

    Lucky. I have 11 left before they will let me go. That will put me in at 26 years.
