KENNEWICK, Wash.-- The Kennewick Police Department celebrated the career of one of their longest serving officers today. 

Captain Keith Sharp announced he is retiring today after 32 years with KPD. Sharp started his career in 1979 and held many positions with the department. He says it's been an honor serving the community he grew up in, but there was one thing that kept him working for over three decades. 

"The people. It's all about the people. It's been a real honor and a real privilege serving the citizens of the city of Kennewick and the Tri-City area. It's all about them." 

Three other officers were also promoted at the ceremony. Former Sergeant Trevor White will replace Captain Sharp. Corporal Dave Blosser moved to Sergeant and Detective Ryan Kelly was promoted to Corporal.
