It is official.

After 37 years, John retired from the Kingston Police Department.

It was a difficult decision for him to make.

Yesterday, 12/23, was a very tough day for him, but one that he will always remember. During his last tour of duty, he received many congratulatory phone calls, hand shakes and hugs from police officers and others. His tour ended at 11:00 (PM) with a remarkable "event".

As John left Police Headquarters, there were many parked law enforcement vehicles with lights flashing.
Officers from the Kingston Police Department, NY State Police and Town of Ulster Police Dept. stood at attention to salute John as he left.

Then, he was given a police escort home, with flashing lights all the way.

(Julie had to ride "shotgun" in the lead car to show the way.)

(The police dept. will be having a party in honor of John in January.)

Just wanted to share this with you!! Needless to say, I am soooooooooooo very proud of him!

John's e-mail is: ,

if you want to drop him a note.

Love, Char

All of us in the New York Police
Combat Association wish to
congratulate John
on his long and illustrious
law enforcement career.

Enjoy your retirement John,
you earned it.
