Law enforcement has evolved greatly over the past many years, and that's not just in reference to the myriad of newer, better, quicker forensics to help investigate and solve crimes. It's referring to basically everything involved in law enforcement from the uniforms to the cars to the working conditions, assignments, rank, etc.Basically everything that is except the people who actually do the job. Over a total of near 20 years, the police officer is still in the 'Cro-Magnon' stage of development. There are some who have progressed further than others, but the 'higher life forms' in the job tend to somehow avoid rank that seems reserved for the non-evolved.What happens in a day in the life of a police officer? Much of it is probably not at all what the average citizen thinks. Not by a long shot. Real Cops Don't Pay For Lunch tries to outline ". . .a day in the life. . ." honestly (sometimes embarrassingly so), clearly, and often amusingly.The guy who couldn't complete a sentence when he was stopped for speeding because ". . .someone just called my wife - AND THEY JUST HUNG UP!"Another somewhat eccentric gentleman who was horrified to find he had a pocket full of change and proceeded to disburse said change across three of the six lanes of the highway he was on.Neither of them got a ticket. Several women who opted for the crying routine, however, were ticketed.None of this yet even takes into account the brass and the caste system in place at many police departments; brass who have committed atrocities that fully earned them that hunk of limburger cheese on their manifold. This was completely unbeknownst to them, of course, but it certainly delivered the message.Real Cops covers all this and more. Barney Miller watch out!

About the Author:

Leonard Miller isn't. For reasons that began as 'perceived necessity' and are currently 'just because,' it's a pseudonym. The owner of the pseudonym has just shy of two decades experience in law enforcement, a Bachelor of Science degree in Law Enforcement, and seven years of experience teaching college courses in the Criminal Justice curriculum.The Bachelor degree in Law Enforcement almost shared 'Major' status with Journalism. The latter being three credit hours short of major status, Journalism ended up being the minor course of study.Throughout a law enforcement experience that saw the rank of patrolman, records officer, investigator (which was a detective without the rank, pay, or shiny badge), evidence officer, photo technician, juvenile officer, and sergeant, writing remained a constant freelance hobby. Leonard hasn't ever had a book published before, but has been a publisher writer for many years.Caught in a sort of limbo in life and the chosen profession due to several issues; around this time, not many police officers would admit to being avid rock fans. He not only admitted it, but played in a couple of rock bands during this tenure.Due to that association, because he failed to see the absolute requirement to arrest anyone and everyone who found themselves in violation of some law somewhere, accusations of "You don't want to arrest your buddies." flew.Not being one to back down, this led to a downward spiral. John Mellencamp said it best; "I fight authority - authority always wins." In the long run, that's probably right. But if you don't do what you believe to be the right thing to do at any given time, that's something you can regret for a long time.Or should.
