Patrolling the Darkness: How a City's First Female Police Officer Loses Herself- And is Arrested by God

 
9780692361467: Patrolling the Darkness: How a City's First Female Police Officer Loses Herself- And is Arrested by God

Janell Armstrong joined the Police Department at the age of 30. She longed for the great outdoors, but it soon became apparent to her that the great outdoors meant torrential rain, blizzards, and ice storms, during which she was expected to direct traffic while standing in the middle of the street, a target for suspended and unlicensed drivers. In spite of this she loved the people she worked with, and fought to remain in a job where she was granted little or no respect from within the headquarters' walls. Ironically, she'd had the perfect upbringing for such a position. She'd grown up with a dominant father who believed that a woman's place was in the kitchen, garden, field, etc. and a mother who was before her time in believing that both men and women were to be respected. As a result, Janell had developed a thick skin, and was impervious to all efforts to puncture it. This book is the story of her fight to stay on the police force.

About the Author:

Janell Armstrong believes she was born at exactly the right time and in the right place – at home in a small house in Nebraska. Though she didn’t think so at the time, growing up on a working farm was the perfect place for her. Her education consisted of country school, two years of Catholic grade school, four years of Catholic high school, one year of nurse’s training, business college and then the police academy. She wanted to do one of everything, and she’s still working on it. She hopes you enjoy this book, a small segment of her law enforcement experience.
