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.
