Albany Police Captain retires after 28 years of service

One of the Albany Police Department's top cops was honored Friday as he retired after nearly three decades of service.

The city held a retirement celebration for Captain Charlie Poole, the head of the Albany Police Investigations Division.

The Albany native served as an officer for 28-years and 11-months.

Poole said  "It's a lonely job. It's a thankless job. Through the years I spent a lot of time away from my family. That's one of the things I want to do too. I want to reconnect with my family."

The Mayor, Police Chief,  and fellow officers presented Poole with several plaques and awards.
