True Blue : Police Stories By Those Who Have Lived Them (04 Edition)by Randy Sutton
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
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 result is True Blue, a collection of funny, charming, exciting, haunting stories about murder investigations, missing children, bungling burglars, car chases, lonely and desperate shut-ins, routine traffic stops, officers killed in the line of duty, and the life-changing events of September 11. Here, officers reveal their emotions as they recount the defining moments of their careers. Some of the stories include:
-Two cops' desperate search for a missing child feared kidnapped
-The revival of the one-month old baby who was shot in the face in a drive-by shooting
-A patrol officer's dramatic showdown with a hostage-holding gunman
-On-the-scene details of rescue and tragedy during the 9/11 terrorist attacks
This powerful collection of true stories written by police officers--from murder investigations to bungled burglaries to September 11th--depicts not just the details of police work, but the heart and soul behind the uniform and badge. Martin's Press.
