Cops, Crooks and other Crazies is the inside story of policing California streets and highways. It is all here: the humorous, sad, tragic, violent and incredible, straight from the streets and highways of California from Yreka to the Mexican border. From walking foot beats as a rookie cop in San Diego's Skid Row to protecting President Ronald Reagan and the Queen of England during their historic meeting in Santa Barbara, Captain Nuttall tells what police work is really like as he observed and experienced it for 31 years during the greatest evolution of law enforcement in American History - on the San Diego Police Department and the California Highway Patrol.

When George Clifton Nuttall was born in 1930, nearly everyone in his large family, of more than 60 members, expected him to grow up to be a San Diego firefighter. After all, his grandfather was Fire Department Battalion Chief John Andrew Wood, and his father was Captain George Patrick Nuttall. By the time he was 19, George had decided he wanted to be a California Highway Patrol officer. Achieving that goal in 1954 after two years on the San Diego Police Department, he worked his way up to sergeant, lieutenant and captain. Even after retirement, George couldn't give up police work. He and his former San Diego partner joined forces for an exhaustive investigation of the unsolved D.B. Cooper skyjacking case.
