The son of retiring Sheriff Jay Varney in Madera County, California, relayed a heartfelt message on behalf of the department on June 2, during what was Varney’s last 10-10, the brevity code for going off-duty.

“You did not force us to follow you but rather invited us on a journey that has created a legacy that will last a lifetime,” Dispatcher Travis Varney, the sheriff’s son, said on the radio.
