I was on the job for 25yrs before taking a buy out that gave me a 30yr pension. Just couldn't say no. I worked for the Montclair PD in NJ. I worked at many jobs in the dept. over the years but liked the street best.. I've been collecting Police patches for over 30yrs. and have a nice collection of patches and some badges. I've slowed down since retirement only because my supply of traders is getting low and I don't have any resources left.
