His final code 3 came cross the radio, 28 years of service well done
No more donning the uniform, says his tearful goodbyes to everyone.
Police Sgt. Douglas Hogate Sr., Badge number 612
His well deserved retirement at hand, a new adventure leisurely to delve.
The voice responding to his final code 3, a voice very familiar to him
Was his son Douglas Hogate Jr., a dispatcher for 9 years full of pride to the brim!
It was the coolest video I’ve seen for a long time, at least personally I think so
He said, “It’s my honor to acknowledge this code 3, to the greatest man I know.”
I’m sure the city of Salem, New Jersey, and all those in the police department there
Are gonna miss this dedicated hero, here’s the video, I just had to share!
