Thank you for the add. In my 16-years working as a Corrections Officer, Gang Unit Commander and the President of the Florida and the National Gang Investigators Associations representing more than 20,000 gang professionals, I have seen too often the results of gang violence. I started the Rusty Keeble Foundation to begin working hard to save both our communities and our kids from the violence caused by gangs. According to reports, Los Angeles has had more than 5,000 gang murders in the last 10-years.
Our latest assessment, which was released in January 2009 showed a reported 20,000 gangs and 1 Million gang members in the United States alone. It can be said, that an estimated 85% of all violent crime in the United States can be contributed in some way to gangs.
We are building an Army - a GANGFREE Project Army to build a grassroots effort to win this War on Gangs, stop the killing and breathe life back into our communities so our children (the future) can live and play instead of die and commit crimes.

I promised many of my PoliceLink friends that I would keep you updated on my new mystery/suspense trilogy. I'm pleased to announce my first novel, Child Finder, has debuted this month. It is available online at Barnes & Noble, and
Amazon. It has already received some great reviews, to include a 5-Star rating by Armchair Interviews!
I am hosting a formal launch and book signing event at Borders bookstore, Chapel Hills Mall, Colorado Springs, CO on Sunday, June 7th, from 12:00 noon to 4:00 pm. It would be great to see you there, but if you cannot make it, then I hope you still get your hands on a copy of my book.
Please check my website where I have a pretty cool book trailer movie posted, as well as much more detail about the trilogy and upcoming book signing events: www.childfinder.us
