After September 11, 2001, Las Vegas Police Sergeant Randy Sutton began soliciting writing from law enforcement officers-his goal being to bridge the gap between the police and those they serve, with a book that offers a broad and thoughtful look at the many facets of police life. Hundreds of active and former officers from all over the United States responded: men and women from big cities and small towns, some who had written professionally, but most of whom were doing so for the first time. ***The full proceeds of this book are being donated to the families of the Law Enforcement Officers killed on 9/11.

    1st review

    This collection of first-person stories is an unvarnished look at the professional life of a law enforcement officer. Better yet, it's a look at how that professional life spills over into every aspect of an officer's personal life. One can't help but have greater respect for people who are true blue every day of their lives . . . they are held to a very high standard and deserve incredible respect. By the same token, given the honor and integrity displayed in these stories, one can't help but feel great pain for them when one of their own crosses that blue line.

    This book is a roller coaster of emotion from story to story. You will read a terrifying story about the bad humans in society, and then it will lift you back up with a story of courage and happiness. A MUST READ!!!!!!
