HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- A Henrico police officer received a special send off last week during his last shift as a school resource officer at Glen Allen High School.

Officer Craig Burton received a final salute from school faculty, fellow officers and the school band as he walked out of the school one last time.

The group applauded and cheered him on during the heartwarming send off.

“Like so many other school resource officers, Officer Burton was beloved by the students, parents and Henrico County Public Schools faculty he served,” Henrico Police wrote on Facebook.

Burton retired after 36 years on the job, including six years as a School Resource Officer at Glen Allen High.
