Alabama police captain to end 35-year career without using a sick day
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - A police captain in Tuscaloosa will end a 35-year career without taking a single sick day.
WSFA-TV reports that Capt. Michael A. Flowers will retire Saturday after starting in 1980. Records show he never took a day off for illness over his three decade career.
“We believe this shows his dedication to the police department and the City of Tuscaloosa,” said a release from the Tuscaloosa Police Department.
Flowers commands the department's east precinct and its special response team. Prior to that, he worked as a motors/patrol officer before being promoted to sergeant in the early 90s. He began a captain in 2005.
