Lee is correct. Doors are opened and doors are sometimes doors are slammed shut. We wish you all the best in your future endeavors!

A hard thing to do but life is short, and working in a toxic atmosphere is not good. Good luck to you!

Morning, thanks for all the encouragement. It's scary leaving a job where you have put heart and soul into it. I've put my life on the line dealing with bad people with guns.Was shot at year half ago and yet to go court.
You guys have brought tears to my eyes,never expected t-man members to be like family. Some have already reached out for some work and get aways.
My wife and i went yesterday and had a date in a little country park and it felt great. Been a long time since we did that.She also likes the idea i will be home and not working 12 hour night shifts. Plus my health needs some attention.
I will miss my fellow officers. Some i hope i made a difference in their lives. I recently bought a complete fishing outfit for a fellow female officers son.She didn'T have the extra money. All i asked was. Spend all the time you can with him.
I'll go for now. Sarge out

Been following your work posts for a while. Do not blame you a bit. Good luck on your new ventures. The person will get his. What goes around comes around. May take a while but you will get the last laugh.

They don't pay you enough to get an ulcer. If you need to spend a long weekend or something away from your surroundings, give me a shout.


Take care

Make sure you request an exit interview with the higher ups and explain in person exactly why you are leaving.

Good luck

I think it's happening everywhere. Every agency around including the one I work for is having problems. They use to say the S#$@ rolls down, I think the stress does to because they don't know how to deal with it. It's a sad situation but reality is I'm probably not to far behind you. Hoping to hold on until spring while I find something else.

God bless you my friend. I know personally what it's like.

Having retired three years ago I am convinced a lot of people work too long, haven't missed work at all, busy all the time. Finally took Social Security in June at 65, nice to see some of the money I paid in for 45 years come back.
