Another Father’s Day has come and gone, and with it many of us celebrated the men in our lives who have acted as fathers, whether or not they were related to us.

The Las Vegas Metro Police Department marked the day with an especially sweet moment between a father and son, as Officer Albert Beas signed off for the last time, stepping out of the patrol car and into retirement.



“On June 11th Officer Albert Beas retired after 25 years of service with LVMPD,” the LVMPD posted on Sunday.

The video shows Officer Beas sitting in his patrol call and radioing in for the last time. His son is soon on the other end, congratulating and praising his father for his work.



“Today, it is my great honor and sincere pleasure to announce that as of 14:00 hours on this day, after 25 years of serving this great community and beautiful city of Las Vegas, my father, mentor, hero and so much more, Officer Albert Beas, is retiring and has been secured for the day for his final time,” Nikalus says.

“Dad, you’re secured for retirement. I love you.”

Blinking hard, the father and newly retired cop responds, “Love you son, thank you.”



The video has been reacted to over 4,500 times and viewed over 63,000 times. Hundreds of people commented to extend their own gratitude for Beas’ service, both those who share the same city and complete strangers.

“Thank You Officer Beas for your dedication protecting our city and all the citizens for 25 years,” one commenter wrote. “God Bless You. Enjoy Your Retirement!”



“Congratulations on your retirement!” another wrote. “Thank you for 25 years of your service! Thats awesome what your son did! My eyes teared up too!”

“That’s awesome!” a third wrote. “My dad was a police officer for 36 years! Thankful for the brave men and women who protect us everyday, risking their lives daily to protect and serve. Congratulations on 25 years of service!”

While it’s certainly nice to hear from the community you served that they appreciate your years of work, there’s something extra special about your child assisting in that final call and addressing you as “father, mentor, hero” — something Beas will likely remember for the rest of his life.

Family Escapes Through 2nd-Story Window During Armed Standoff After Suspect Barricades Door: Report

On July 25, in Auburn, Alabama, a man reportedly put his family, his neighborhood, first responders and himself in a very dangerous position. Calls came into the Auburn Police District around 7:00 p.m. reporting a domestic violence incident in the Camden Ridge Subdivision. When police arrived, the man reportedly began firing at them with a handgun. Police fired back, and the man retreated into the home, where he also had his family trapped in a room. Thanks to the police and fire department coming together and working smarter instead of harder, the situation was resolved without injury to the family members trapped upstairs. It was firefighter Andrew Kiser, Chief of Police Cedric Anderson and Shift Supervisor Lt. Cody Hill who were responsible for carrying out the daring rescue that helped bring the threat to an end. While the shooter refused to exit the house, the men carried a ladder to the house and set it up to reach one of the second-story windows, where they learned the man’s family had been trapped. While Anderson held the ladder steady, Hill climbed the ladder and Kiser assisted the family as they climbed out of the window. With the family out of the way, Lee County SWAT was able to enter the house and capture the suspect. He was taken to Baptist Medical Center South after he was found to have sustained what appeared to be a gunshot wound. “Auburn PD Alerts: Heavy Police Activity in the Camden Ridge Subdivision, in the area of Wedgewood Ct.,” a public safety alert for the area read, according to WRBL-TV. “The scene is secure at this time, NO ONGOING THREAT.” Auburn Assistant Police Chief Clarence Stewart praised the efforts of all involved, highlighting how each group present played an important role in…

After Receiving Call About Blazing Attic Fire, Police Rescue Man Trapped Inside Smoke-Filled Bedroom

A family in Marlboro Township, New Jersey, woke up just before midnight on Sunday and sensed something was wrong. They called 911 at around 11:38 p.m., reporting a “possible fire at the residence,” according to The Journal NJ. Officers Ryan Anzalone, Donna Gonzalez, Michael Morgante and Colin Murray with the Marlboro Township Police Department were first on the scene and quickly assessed the situation. They found smoke pouring out of the attic, but were relieved to see the family appeared to have exited the home. After a short time, though, the family realized one of their members was not with them, and was likely still trapped inside on the second floor. Gonzalez and Anzalone charged in and found the man, as described, in a bedroom on the second floor. By the time they got there, the room was “completely filled with smoke,” but they managed to rescue the resident. The fire department had a difficult time accessing the home due to the long, narrow driveway and a large landscaping rock. “While enroute Chief 2-66 was advised of heavy smoke from the attic,” the Robertsville Volunteer Fire Co. #1 posted on Facebook. “At the time the mutual aid response plan was put in place and the box alarm was requested to bring in initial assistance.” “Upon the arrival of 2-66 Chief advised the house was located down a 180 foot narrow driveway. Once engine 2-75 arrived there was trouble accessing the house due to a large ornamental boulder and trees. Members of the engine and police moved the 400lb boulder so the engine could get to the house and attack the fire. “As the incident progressed, the second alarm mutual aid plan was requested for this deep seated, hard to access attic fire.” The two officers who…
