I'm new here..retired
Greetings fellow active and retired officers. Being new to the forum I have done a cursory search to see if there is a section specific to retired officers. Have not found one.
I retired from the Pierce County (WA) Sheriff's Department after 29 years service. Immediately took a post retirement position as Chief Investigator for the Washington Horse Racing Commission where I served for thirteen years. Totally retired now and wife and I do some traveling and spend time at our property in Montana.
For the retirees: How many of you have taken advantage of the Law Enforcement Safety Act of 2004 (H.R. 218) for the nationwide CWP? I have not yet done so but will be filing the paperwork and doing the qualification soon.
For those of you RV'ing retirees (or vacationing active duty) who may be heading into Montana this summer, drop me a note and maybe we can rendezvous for some trout fishing.

Welcome from the east half of the left coast,, aka 509 country. Retired WSP. Retirees get a bit of crap from the actives, but that's mostly envy. We get to mind our own business now, instead of everyone else's.
Good forum here, get verified.Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same.-- Anonymous

Greetings from the east coast. Retired deputy from upstate NY here. Funny thing you mentioned Montana, the wife and I are heading to the Kalispell area in june.
Maybe we should get our own area in here, we could call it OFF, as in Old Farts Forum.
I retired in 98, kicked around working for a friend of mine untill 05 then pulled the pin for good.If you can't do it from a boat. Do you really want to do it?

I just retired after 30 years. I went a little sooner than I wanted to, but the new Sheriff wanted a new Chief Deputy, who wanted a new Captain, who wanted a new Lt., and that's where I dropped off! I still work part time as a patrol officer for a small community, and by the end of summer, I'll be doing something full time. I still have a few good years left in me and am not really ready to hang it up just yet! Welcome to the forum. It's always great to see another old fart.For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.
