ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

One of the Albany Police Department's most well known and popular officers retired Friday.

Lieutenant Tracey Barnes retired after 25 years of service. His coworkers and fellow law enforcement friends gave him a retirement party, complete with Hawaiian shirts and flowers.

Barnes worked just about every job at APD from their public information officer, to mounted horse patrol chief, to commander of the robbery and homicide division.

"I just liked the interaction and it's always something going on," said Lt. Barnes. "That's why I've always really enjoyed working here in the city of Albany."

Tracey Barnes said he plans to work part time at the Federal Courthouse, while spending more time with his family and fishing.
