Albany loses more men in blue

January 12, 2007

Albany --  Officers with almost 150 years of combined experience retired from the Albany Police Department Friday.  

Chief James Younger called it "a bittersweet day" as five officers, all with more than 20 years of service at APD, retired.

Lt. Robert Seago, Sgt. David Noel, Sgt.Frank Upshaw, Cpl. Charles Simpson and Cpl. Cecil Whittington all received their retirement badges.

You may know Whittington better as officer friendly, often patrolling Downtown Albany on foot. He says he plans to spend more time with his family and passed some words of wisdom along to new officers.

"If they're training, they need to pay attention to their training off and learn everything they can and keep in mind that it's teamwork. this is one job that can't be done without teamwork."

Combined, the five officers had 148 years of service with APD.
