ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Sgt. Denny Allen with the Anchorage Police Department will hand in his badge Thursday.
For years Allen has patrolled the streets of Fairview, working with Anchorage's public inebriate population and the homeless.
For his last day on patrol, it was business as usual.
"Nothing big except to keep doing what we've been doing for the last few years," he said.
The fixture in Fairview knows most by name.
"The business people I will miss," he said.
"A lot of the people on the streets, I certainly won't miss them and I have a feeling they won't miss me," he continued.
He may be right.
"Unfortunately (as) the guy that dumped all the alcohol and worked on the homeless and kicked them out of their camps," Allen said of what he will be remembered for.
