  • First off Congratulations guys!!!......I worked with you for 13 years, as I retired from OHP last year. You and I have had several conversations about this decision and man I have to say...I'm 100% behind you, you guys won't regret it a bit. I'm telling you it will be a week or 2 down the road and you will realize a ton of stress has dropped away, that you never knew was there and that your worries in life can now be focused on those which matter to you the most. Don't listen to any nay sayers, send them my way, I can tell them you served this great state with dignity and pride....and it is a early retirement! Let DPS call it what it wants, you don't send retirement checks to someone who quits a job. You simply didn't stay in as long as they may have liked. You simply stayed for the amount of time was right for you and your family. Removing stress from your family, including your children, they understand more than most people give them credit for, is as big as a gift as you can give them. You can now be present!!!....You guys stay safe, this is a great move that you won't regret.....great video!

  • A huge congratulations on your retirement. i certainly know about the emotions that you went through. I retired January 20, 2020 from law enforcement after 42 years. 35 of those years at Gretna PD, Gretna, Louisiana. After that retirement we moved to our homestead in Mississippi and I went back to work with Hancock County Sheriff's Office, MS. Long story short, I was there 7 years until 1/20/2020. I really had a tough time walking away from it after 42 years but I knew in my heart of hearts it was time. Again, congrats and wishing you much luck on you future endeavors, Carl and Dawn Homestead

I was doing the math a few days ago and I’m 39 years old and I can’t retire until I’m 55.. so I have about 16 more years to go.. I can’t wait till I can hand end my stuff.. these days being a cop ain’t the same! Not appreciated like we used to be. But again, congrats!! Just happened upon your channel and fell in love with it! I sit in my patrol car watching your videos and daydreaming about retiring on an old farm someday!

  • Thank you for your service to your community and state. Only you know what’s right for your family don’t let anybody else tell you differently. I’m glad you get some benefits for working 14 years. Some states I don’t think you get any benefits until you’re there 20 years. I think it’s a good idea to get out, due to what the Democrats, ANTIFA, and BLM are turning this country into. Cops are threatened now more than ever. You now have 454,000 subscribers. Make that 450,001 subscribers!.... Me! This is the first video I’ve watched on your channel. I’ve watched Jimmy Houston’s channel for about two years now. Great guy. He’s got a beautiful place.

  • Brother first off congratulations to you and your family! I’ve been in this game now for going on almost 22 years as a deputy sheriff in Al. I’ve been having the same voices telling me it’s time to go but honestly have no clue how we would make it. The demons that we deal with mentally and physically are very strong and very real and I hope that no one never has to experience that. Like you I’ve seen things that the average person will never see in a lifetime and I’m ok with that because it’s a true calling to do what we do. I’m man enough to admit that I sat with tears in my eyes most of the way through the video because it hit so close to home. Good luck my brother I truly wish y’all the best.

He will gladly welcome us back if we will repent ask for forgiveness.. daniel if he is leading you in this direction he will supply all your needs. I know DJ must have worried about you so.we live in an age when the bible says love of others will wax could and states are talking about defunding the police this is the dumbest thing I have ever heard but it should not be shocking it's all in the word of god.
