Oldest Cop In The World - Texan Bill Hardin (92)

At the Johnson County Sheriff's Office in Cleburne, there is a case that has puzzled one veteran investigator for nearly a century.

That's the case for retirement.

"I’m afraid to stop. I’m afraid I couldn’t get started again," Reserve Deputy Bill Hardin said.

Because he has no desire to quit, Bill Hardin is, by all accounts, the oldest police officer in the world at the age of 94. Bill started his career with the Fort Worth Police Department after World War II, and spent most of his time chasing drug dealers.

These days, Bill says he keeps showing up because what else would he do?

“I don’t fish. I don’t hunt. Don’t drink, don’t smoke," he said.
