Synopsis: Brave Hearts takes you inside the hearts and minds of fifteen police officers as they go about their difficult task of protecting the people from harm. Whether they are gathering intelligence to stop another terrorist attack, crawling through the rubble of the World Trade Center towers looking desperately for survivors, working undercover to get illegal weapons and drugs off the streets, tracking a serial murderer, ending a gun battle, or mediating a domestic dispute, the men and women in these pages give new life to the meaning of heroic. The author s unusual access to the people who work in this insular and isolated profession enables the reader to take a unique voyage into the trenches of the law enforcement world. No one in this book escapes the common psychological and physical toll the job demands from people who routinely commit breathtaking acts of bravery to apprehend a criminal or protect an innocent person from crime. Ultimately, these stories are about people who have chosen a life of service. They have devoted themselves to something larger than themselves, to an idea that they have to do something that gives back with their lives. Lives of meaning and commitment. And despite the constant exposure to life s dark side, the injuries, time away from their families, vagaries of shift work, and so on, they all view that law enforcement work was a privilege and a job they were lucky to have. Read Brave hearts from beginning to end. You will never look at police officers the same way again.
From the Back Cover:
"Anyone interested in the police and their unique way of life should read Brave Hearts, fifteen fascinating true stories about cops that dramatically reveal what makes them tick."
-- Joseph Wambaugh
From the pages of Brave Hearts . . .
"I think people would be surprised how many cops worry about the people we have to arrest. When I see someone go off to jail for killing someone, I think, there go the lives of two human beings, the person who died and the person who committed the crime.
The years I worked undercover, there were times I had to be in the suspect's home. If they had little kids, I would look at them and realize that in a couple of weeks, a month, or maybe a year, these children won't have a daddy because I am going to arrest him. You think about your own family, you look at your kids, and you feel their love for you. Then you realize that the little boy whose father you are about to send to jail loves his dad the same way your kids love you. You ask yourself, who is really being hurt? Sometimes you can't avoid the answer. It's the kids who suffer. A lot of people don't dig that deep when they think about police work. If they did, I think they would understand and appreciate us more than they do."
Read Brave Hearts from beginning to end.
You will never look at police officers the same way again.
