Welcome here folks. I myself am a recently retired police officer with 25 years of service. It would have been longer but was forced to medically retired due to blowing out my knees one time too many. My favorite times while working was with the K-9 unit for 7-8 years, and working traffic on a motor for 7 years. The freedom being on a bike is second to none. Unfortunately, with the traffic position was mandatory handling of all the fatal collisions, the carnage, and the never-ending Traffic Accident Reconstruction classes.

I'm in my 14th year now. I did a few years with 2 different city PDs, and have been working for the state in investigations since 2003. I love my job and can't imagine doing anything else.

Hey folks!

I did 2.5 yrs for Uncle Sugar as an Infantryman. By the grace of God I didn't see combat.
In 1998 I started with NY state dept of Correctional Svcs. Took a 2 yr break midstream where I tried out Parole. Back to prison. I'm almost starting my 16th year with the state this year. Currently at Attica Prison.

One month to retirement after 25 years with the NJDOC. Started at and did 22 of my 25 at old Rahway State Prison, now known as East Jersey State Prison.

At 62, you could say I'm limping and dragging towards the door.

I did work for a county corrections department for about 6 months and a state corrections department for about a year before I went back on active duty(during my break in service). I wanted to use that experience to get on with some local police departments but ended up going back on active duty instead.

I've definitely heard of Rahway, as I'm sure you've heard of us. ;) Welcome brother! I consider it sort of a badge of honor to have worked in some of the most famous prisons in the world - Green Haven, Sing Sing, and now Attica. Enjoy your retirement.

Attica, our brother in disaster. You getting the news coverage kept the media eye off the riot we were having at Rahway. Unfortunately, yours ended up a lot worse than ours, but the end to your riot is probably what convinced ours to finally surrender just as the troopers were walking in.

Our last active duty cop from the riot, the guy that was saved by Reuben "Hurricane" Carter by locking him in the Officers bathroom in 3-wing, just retired a tad over a year ago. He had left, pulled his pension, got on Newark PD under the CETA program. Surprised when Newark didn't hire those guys after CETA ended, he came back to Rahway as a "rookie" again in '85.

We used to kid him by calling him, "Tony, 20 in 20 to go, the Cop".:D
Tough nut. An ex-Marine, I went into combat with him a lot of times over the years. He did 22 of his 25 years on the floor squad, retiring at 64.

He's now a homestead farmer up there in NY now. Probably freezing his gonads off tonight, too.:D
