TULSA — "Robert one, I just want to say, I bid my farewell to all the heroes from Tulsa Police Department that I've had the honor to work with," said Tulsa Police Chief Chuck Jordan.
An emotional sendoff for outgoing Tulsa Police Chief Chuck Jordan giving his final radio sign-off on his last day before retirement.
TPD posted a nearlysix-minute-long tribute video to its Facebook page last night.
Complete with music, and photos from Jordan's more than 50 years with the Tulsa Police Department.
In his final address, he thanked the officers and the staff and reminded them why they do this job.
"Watch your 6, take care of each other, take care of our citizens, and god bless everyone of you, cause I'm really really gonna miss you. Robert one, 10-7, and leave before he's out as well," said Jordan.
The responses ranged from, "God bless you chief, godspeed, we love you." to "Thank you chief for all your amazing years of service."
Those emotional messages of thanks lasted more than three minutes.
We certainly wish him the very best in his well-deserved retirement.
Major Wendell Franklin now officially becomes Tulsa's next police chief.
We showed you last week when the mayor announced his choice for Tulsa's top cop.
Franklin has been with TPD more than 23 years.
