SHERMAN, Tex. -- After 25 years on the job, one of Sherman’s Finest is leaving the force.
Officer Chuck Mauldin began his career with the Sherman Police Department 25 years ago this July, but he said goodbye to his fellow officers and friends Wednesday.
Mauldin is taking a security job at the federal courthouse, so he won't be too far away. But he says it will be hard to leave.
"It’s been fun. Early in my career, it was one of the toughest nights. I told my wife and she asked if I wanted to quit. I said "Heck no." That was the most fun I ever had," Mauldin said.
After receiving a plaque for his service, a reception was held to celebrate on Wednesday.
