Deputy Chief of the Abbotsford Police Department (APD) Rick Lucy chose You Tube as the medium for his retirement announcement.
In his announcement Lucy thanks a number of people in and out of the APD and speaks at some length about his pride working for the citizens of Abbotsford over the years.“I have to say how much I love this community,” he says in the video.
