9781439202005: The Powder Blue Negligee: MEMOIRS OF A PROBATION OFFICER

Through the eyes of a frontline officer, these tales are raucous, fun, and heartbreaking in equal measure. Loosely autobiographical, The Powder Blue Negligee: Adventures of a Probation Officer by Kurt Niemann is a stunning debut that imparts a few unforgettable memories of a career spent in service. Beginning as a rookie on probation detail in the late 1960s and becoming a member of a multi-agency unit, then finally as the designer and coordinator of the first juvenile detention officer academy in the state of Arizona, this officer has seen it all and then some. In fact, he sets the standard of what it takes to keep an eye on the bad guys—and the good ones—all the while keeping his wits, wisdom, and sense of humor about him. From dealing with car thieves, prostitutes, and hoodlums, these adventures are often lighthearted, at times surreal and always entertaining.
