Albany - The Albany Police Department says farewell to three veteran officers. Lt. Kenneth Singleton, Sgt. Victor Singleton and Cpl. Ted Thomas said goodbye to the department Friday.

Corporal Thomas isn't giving up law enforcement, though. He spent more than half of his 17 years with APD as a school resource officer, and now will return to that role.  He said, "That's a passion of mine. That's just something that I love doing, working with kids. You never know which one I'm impacting." Just hoping you're making a difference? "Just hoping I'm making a difference. That's what I strive for daily."

Thomas is already working with the Dougherty County School System at Westover High School.
