ORANGE COUNTY, Indiana — A retiring Indiana conservation officer got a sweet surprise sendoff as he heads into retirement after 30 years of service.
Indiana DNR posted the video of Officer Jeff Milner. One of IDNR's newest conservations officers — who happened to be Milner's daughter — gave him his end of tour call.
"Attention all units and stations, Officer Jeff Milner, my dad, is going 10-42 for the final time as an Indiana conservation officer," she said as he wiped a tear from his eye.
IDNR said Milner spearheaded "a nationally renowned K-9 program" during his tenure.
Milner began his career at a region headquarters before transferring to Grant County, then again to Orange County, where he worked until retirement.
