CLARK COUNTY, Ill. (WTHI) - It was an emotional goodbye, after more than 30-years of service.

On Friday night, Clark County Sheriff Jerry Parsley said goodbye as he is retiring from law enforcement.

"For the last time in 36-years...I will be going 10-42. I just want to take this opportunity to thank everybody for their support all these years. Dispatch Sam One....10-42," Sheriff Parsley said over the police radio.

A 10-42 is an end of duty radio call.

On Friday, his office and the community came out to celebrate his career with a special ceremony.

It happened at Harmony Hall in Marshal.
