Synopsis: "Badges and Badasses" is based on real events that happened during the author's three years of working undercover in "Stings" or "Storefronts." It portrays the day to day happenings in the operation of a "Storefront" and situations arising during his working one on one against the car thieves outside the "Storefront" surroundings.
Joseph A. Fitch was born in Clay County, Indiana, and graduated from Sugar Ridge Township School at Ashboro in rural Clay County.
He attended Indiana State University at Terre Haute, then applied for admission to the Indiana State Police Academy and was accepted.
Upon his graduation from the Academy he was assigned the Indiana Toll Road where he served as a patrolman. During his first year as a police officer he qualified to be a member of the Toll Road District Pistol Team and soon became a member of the Top 20 pistol shots in the Department. A position he maintained the remainder of his career. During the last ten years of his career he was a member of the Indiana State Police Pistol Team that represented the Indiana State Police in national competitions.
Trooper Fitch transferred to the Terre Haute Post from the Toll Road and was promoted to Sergeant and assigned to the Headquarters Vehicle Theft Section. During this portion of his career he worked undercover in two "Sting" or "Storefront" operations buying stolen vehicles from the car thieves and had minor involvement in a third undercover "Sting."
His retirement from the Indiana State Police did not end his career in law enforcement. He served as Sheriff of Sullivan County, Indiana, and retired from law enforcement after serving as the Sullivan County Indiana Prosecutors Investigator for seven years making a total of almost 40 years in law enforcement.
