RIP All Brothers. Retire ASAP when you are able to, and enjoy life. Life IS too short, and the ultra stressful [to those who actually have to do policework] CPD doesn't help at all. Dealing with their Bullshit Politics is worse most of the time than dealing with the Vermin out on the streets.

Bob Valleyfield AKA "The Chief" was one of the first PO's I worked with when I graduated from the academy in September of 1965 and was assigned to the 005th District at 115th & Indiana. What a great person he was. He always chose his words very carefully before speaking. When push came to shove "The Chief" would get a little grin on his face and the bad guy would end up in the fetal position on the ground before hitting the lock-up.

RIP my "Warrior" friend.
