After 30 years of service with the Sarasota Police Department, Officer Andre Jenkins had an emotional final shift. During the last radio transmission of his career, Jenkins got choked up but was able to give a sign-off full of gratitude.
"This will be my last transmission on the radio. I had plenty of good times, and a lot of good memories over my career, and I appreciate it. I'll cherish them for the rest of my life. I wish you all well, and a safe tour of duty. This is 616 Officer Andre Leroy Jenkins Jr."
We are proud of you Officer Jenkins, thank you for keeping the streets of Sarasota safe for over 30 years.
