Because of hiring booms in the late 70's and early 80's there are a lot of retirements right now, especially with all the attacks on pension benefits. People who have reached that magic age are bailing out before they lose benefits.

I doubt there are a lot of people just quitting. Some agencies laid people off or had hiring freezes, but they are starting to hire again.

Your degree gets you a POST bonus with most departments, and allows you to earn your Intermediate POST certificate two years sooner than with an Associates Degree.
