No nothing super fun like an earned trail moniker...though my ancient travel name was Scotty. No this is simply a way to reflect a new reality after 33 years of LEOdom; Drum roll please!
I am now Law Dawg (ret) !!!
It will be official June 18th but I am on "Terminal Leave" meaning;
1- I ain't coming back.
2- I am burning my vacation time until the "official" moment.
Will there be any farewell parties from work or any other recognition? Heck no and frankly if they threw one I probably would be a no show anyway. It's been fun and I do appreciate the citizens of Kern County for allowing me to do what I have loved/hated (LEO careers are like a Chinese dinner...sweet and sour) for so long. Feels kinda like those Spring days in school just before Summer vacation. Y'all know, real school work is done and you are hanging out until the day when you are actually free. Sort of a formality...
So Hi folks, I am Law Dawg (ret), a new hanger!
