Calling It Quits After 4 Years - My farewell address to the members of O/R
Dear Members of Officer Resource,
In what will no doubt be the hot topic of discussion amongst some, I've decided to call it quits and move on, after nearly four years of founding/owning/co-owning this wonderful site.
I'll always have a lot of memories, stories, and laughs thanks to LEF-O/R. And whether you like me or you don't, you can't deny what I built here is pretty damn amazing for your average beat cop on a budget. But time marches on, and my time here is up. The site will be in good hands, and will continue to flourish, just without me. Thanks for your support through the years. It means a lot.
As soon as I tie up a few loose ends over the next couple weeks, I'll be leaving the site, and request Reca specifically, to permanently ban me. By doing this, I will have completed my accomplishment of being banned from every major police forum on the internet, even my own. Something that has never been done before.
In the meantime, if you're truly interested in contacting me and keeping in touch, outside of O/R, please private message me. And don't waste my time with semantics. Serious inquiries only please.
In closing, good morning, good afternoon, good evening, and GOODBYE!

Later!Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!

You're responsible for me being here! You'll be missed, Dirk. Good luck to you.

Thanks for all your hard work here. Best of luck to you and all your future endeavors!Pleasing nobody, one person at a time.
That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.

Best of luck to you , Dirk. You have created a wonderful resource for law enforcement officers. One cop to another , THANK YOU.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

I want to thank you for everything you've done to get Law Enforcement Forums and, now, Officer Resource up and running. This is a wonderful community to belong to, a great resource, and I am glad that I found it. Best of luck with your corporate career and with everything you decide to pursue in your personal life.

Be safe. Be well.
Good luck to you.
Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.
