How many LEO's are here?

I was wondering how many other LEO's besides myself are on the forum and what are their jurisdictions? I am an officer in Knoxville, TN. Have been for about 7 years now. I am currently back in patrol, my first love, after a short undercover assignment.

If retired counts in answer to your question,
I am retired from Gladstone,MO(a city surrounded by Kansas City,MO) after 27 years of service.
