It’s likely the largest retirement party many have seen in quite a while.
Hundreds of cops poured into the Houston Police Officers’ Union Friday to say thank you to Gary Hicks.
The veteran officer is retiring from the Houston Police Department after 30 years.
Hicks was surrounded by family and friends at a noon luncheon that even attracted politicians and HPD’s top brass.
Hicks also served as the unofficial photographer at the police union and at various police related events.
Precinct 1 Constable Alan Rosen says Hicks will be joining his department in retirement but he’s not sure what he will do at this point.
