A Final

My friend Bill, is on his "final".  He will be proving his worth as a police officer over the next week or two.  This is the final step before he officially becomes a Police Officer for our department, and released on his own to protect and serve!

I'd be lying to say I don't have a twinge of jealously surrounding where he came from, and where he is at.  After all, he is fulfilling my original dream / plan.  Any jealously I feel is VASTLY overshadowed by a sense of pride, and a level of comfort knowing just how great an officer he is destined to become!  I have no doubt that the future holds great things for him, and I look forward to many years of dispatching for him, and many years of continued friendship!

Bill, my thoughts will be with you more over the next 7-15 days than they already have been.  If I don't get to see you (because of opposite shifts) - I wish you only the best! 

I am confident that my next post will be a congratulations announcement for one of the newest Police Officers in our department! 

Bill, it could not have happened to a more deserving guy!  Congrats again (and again, and again) my friend!


  1. Many congratulations to your friend Bill and best wishes to always end his shift safely!

  2. Thanks for the nice post Dave!

    As I type I have 1 shift down and 4 to go!

    I really wish my stomach would quit being in knots, but getting the first shift done helped a ton!

    Thanks again everyone!


  3. That's awesome. Congratulations to your friend!
