Yep I miss the job, I did thirty years in a large UK Force and retired a year ago this Month, saw many changes some good and some bad. I look back and must admit I had some great times, now I often wonder why I took my payout and pension.

I did thirty years, twenty as a Sergeant when I first started we walked a beat had to stand outside a phone box every hour(it was called a Point) and if you missed it nine times out of ten the Sgt would be there to sign your Pocket book and bingo you were in the mire. I got phizzed (disciplined ) for wearing black woollen gloves  in mid winter instead of my Police issue ones which had kindly been borrowed and not returned from my locker. Oh those were the days !!!. When I started as a Sergeant nobody called you by your first name it was always Sgt, before I retired I had one Officer call me" DUDE" you can imagine the scene I knew then maybe times had changed a little to much for me

I retired in November 2004, with the rank of Aux/Lieutenant, after almost 15 years as an Auxiliary. Only God knows how much I miss my beloved (and sometimes hated) 78th PCT.


The calls for an 85 to pick up some collar we just made at Prospect Park, (my preferred post) where something was always going on...

I think we all miss it when we go out to pasture. As I always say " Once in never out "  A cop will always be a cop.
