About the Author:

Ed Hammer is a retired captain from the Department of Police, Illinois Secretary of State with 27 years experience as a sworn law enforcement officer.

The testimony of Hammer and his partner, Russ Sonneveld, ultimately help convict former Illinois Governor George Ryan on charges of obstruction. Hammer has a B.A, in sociology.
