Lets try this one for a topic starter,

How long have you been on the job.

Well, right around 23 years now.

I believe that Frank Rizzo was elected Mayor in 1971? That would give you around 30 years.

October 1, 1974. Could have retired last year. Our retirement system just added a new financially tempting wrinkle which is making me hang around until July 1, 2003.

but, it's REAL NICE to know you can go if you have to!!

Kimber Lady-

I think this is called "PLOP" It's an offer to take up to 36 months of basic benefits as a lump sum payment and still be able to retire with at least 25 years service credit. 24 months would be a new Harley, but the wife says "NO WAY!!" Maybe a REALLY NICE custom 1911...?

I am grandfathered here in Texas, that means I was an officer before the Commission on Law Enforcement was created, I think that was in 1969 or 1970, I dont remember for sure.

KN me too, I am also grandfathered as a LEO, even though I did attend a state certified academy. I became a cop before minimum standards was adopted in my state which was about 1970 or so. I have almost 27 years in the state police retirement system at present. I got out of law enforcement for a while and was going to get rich. Yea sure, and I did ok, but once a cop always a cop, so I came back to my first love. I plan on bailing out in 2004 and running for a city council seat in my city. I think that will be the perfect cap for a career, to go from being a cop to a politician.

I entered police service in June 1972 and retired in July 1999 for a total of 27 years. When I started the JOB it was fun and when I retired it had ceased to be fun. All and All I would do it again. Police service is not for everyone but it is satisfing.
