ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Jail Administrator Col. Doug McGinley is retiring after 16 years on the job. County officials and jail co-workers joined him in celebrating his final hours on the job.

When you leave a place like this you ask a couple of questions. Did you leave it better than when you came and is it in good hands? And I hope the answer to that is yes in both categories," McGinley said.

Friday was McGinley's last day. It's his second retirement. He retired from 27 years in the Marine Corps before coming to the jail.

His plans from today forward are to relax and spend time with his wife and grandchildren.
