Officer Tom Tipton has been protecting and serving the citizens of Palatka, Florida for almost 15 years.

This year, he is retiring.

His two sons,Taran and Tanner Tipton, made a final call out to him and shared a sweet emotional moment with him.

The moment was shared on Taran’s Facebook page and quickly went viral with more than 40,000 views.

Both of his sons thanked him for his service while also thanking him for being a good dad.

They talked about not only their appreciation for his service but the community and department’s as well:

“The Palaka Police Department and the citizens of the city of Palaka congratulate you on your retirement. Thank you for over 15 years of dedicated and unwavering service to our community.”

The tears started to really roll when one of the sons shared an emotional testimony on how dedicated his dad was to being his father:

“From calling in sick to watch to me hit my first ever home run, to working a Friday and Saturday night only to go fishing on Sunday as if you’re a 25-year old. Dad we love you.”

This is a heartwarming moment for a sweet father and son bond. Congratulations Officer Tipton.
