SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) — A retiring state trooper was able to share his last day on the job with his son who’s following in his father’s footsteps at the Michigan State Police.

On the day of his retirement, Sgt. Ron Taylor and his son, Casey, teamed up as partners for his last patrol. The father and son tell WNEM-TV that they had tried to partner before, but it never worked out because of conflicting schedules.

Casey Taylor recently graduated from the academy and works as a trooper out of Flint. He says carrying on the family legacy at the State Police is an honor, and he even has his father’s old badge number.

Ron Taylor spent nearly 30 years with the State Police, working in West Branch, Tawas and Houghton Lake.
