Daughters Tearful Final Radio Call For Retiring MA Police Officer Dad
Working a 30 plus year career is a pretty good accomplishment in itself, but imagine the pride you would feel reaching the end of it knowing that you have the love and respect of your peers, especially when they give you a special send-off. Then imagine, on top of that, having your daughter there to help make the day even more memorable.
Officer John Wilmot has worked 34 years in law enforcement including 24 years as a Walpole Police Officer...
Well, that is exactly the prideful day that was in store for Walpole Police Officer, John Wilmot, as his daughter Kate drove through some challenging weather all the way from Maine to the Walpole, MA Police Department to perform the final call for her father as he retired Sunday morning after a 34-year law enforcement career.
It won't be easy to hold back your tears as you watch this heartfelt, beautiful moment. Just you try! (grab a tissue)
