Walter L. Harris, Jr. fulfilled a lifelong dream of becoming a Detroit police officer on September 19, 1994. For the next nine-and-a-half years, he served meritoriously in some of Detroit's most dangerous precincts and units, including vice. He joined the Executive Protection Unit (EPU) and served for five years with Chief of Police Isaiah McKinnon, Mayor Dennis Archer, and finally Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick. Badge of Honor: Blowing the Whistle, Walter Harris's first book, is a chronicle of his service in law enforcement and a testament to the honor and integrity that he brought to the badge. It also offers a thoughtful guide to anyone in government or the private sector who might consider blowing the whistle on corruption.

Review:

"Walt Harris always told us the truth during our investigation of Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, even when the truth got Harris in trouble. He stood up with honor at a time when a lot of other people close to Kilpatrick's corruption kept their mouths shut tight." --Jim Schaefer, Pulitzer-Prize winning reporter at the Detroit Free Press

"Following my interview with Detroit Police Offi cer Walter L. Harris, Jr., I invited him to join the EPU. During Officer Harris's service until I left office at midnight, December 31, 2001, he was conscientious, principled, hard-working, reliable, thorough, timely, a team player with his fellow officers, and he took great care of me and my family. He always demonstrated outstanding integrity and character during his service on my Executive Protection Unit." --Dennis W. Archer, Mayor of Detroit (1994-2001)

"What a powerful and beautiful story. Walt Harris has done a great service to Detroit.With a clear, precise snapshot of an incident that belongs in our collective memory...this is a story that should be read by all." --Dr. Isaiah McKinnon, Chief of Police (1994-1997)
