If you are looking for a perfect gift that is sure to put a smile on someone's face, look no further than Oliver Gaspirtz's latest book, A Treasury of Police Humor. In light of all the negative press police officers had to endure over the past few years it is a pleasure to find a book that does not focus on a few bad cops, but shows the human side of the many good cops. A Treasury of Police Humor is a tribute to all the hard working men and women in law enforcement, who risk their lives every day for an often less than grateful public. The book contains over 100 cartoons, strange but true police reports, weird news from around the world, stupid criminals, and funny top ten lists.About the Author:
