SHERMAN, TX -- The Sherman Police Department is saying goodbye to one of their finest.      

Lieutenant Ken Brooks has been with the department since 1994 and will soon be retiring.  

Today, they held a retirement ceremony in his honor.  

Brooks was promoted to Sergeant in 2000, and then Lieutenant in 2006.  

Prior to coming to Sherman, Brooks was a firearms instructor in the Marine Corps.  

"I've made it from the very bottom to where I am and I'm grateful, and I'm grateful to the people I worked for recognizing that I had some capability, and I've enjoyed this a lot," said Brooks.      

Brooks is just one month shy of 20 years with the department and says that some years were good, some bad, but that all of them were memorable.  

He's retiring to Virginia's Shenandoah Valley where he plans to work on his farm.
