'You've Always Been My Hero': Daughter Dispatcher Pays Tribute to Father Retiring From Police in Kentucky

A father and daughter both working for the same Kentucky police department shared an emotional radio call on November 30, as former police sergeant Mike Gross called daughter Kylie Gross in dispatch to sign off for the last time before retirement.

Radioing in from his vehicle, Mike thanked his colleagues at the Fort Mitchell Police Department for their support, and told his daughter that officers would be in “good hands” with her on the “other side of the mic.”

Announcing her dad’s retirement over radio, Kylie says: “Thank you for your 20 years of service, you’ve always been my hero, and I love you to the moon and back, daddy.” Credit: Erin Gross/Fort Mitchell PD via Storyful
