Synopsis: This book is a superb reference for law enforcement and their families, for those who would command, support and assist our law enforcement officers, and for our whole society in these times when the role of the law enforcement officer has become a matter of great public concern. I'm honored to know that my work could be of some assistance, in this worthy endeavor.
Lt. Col. David Grossman

The Price They Pay will attempt to return to the modern police officer something they have been lacking for a long time - humanity. It will tell the story of the mother and child who lost their husband and father to a hit and run, all because a 21-year-old driver was afraid the officer would stop him and find marijuana in his car. Meet the man who has attempted suicide and is entering an inpatient treatment center for his PTSD, the man who stood two feet from his partner when he died from a gunshot wound to the head, the man confined to a hospital for the past year and a wheelchair for the rest of his life, and other officers whose stories continue after the media coverage ends. Enter their homes, their hearts, and their minds to see what they really experience. Learn how their departments, benefits, friends, and families have failed them. Find out what it's really like to walk the path of an emotionally or physically injured officer and why the belief that every officer is supported and cared for through the thin blue line is a fallacy. Like Hearts Beneath the Badge the proceeds of this book will benefit law enforcement charities.

Review: This book is a superb reference for law enforcement and their families, for those who would command, support and assist our law enforcement officers, and for our whole society in these times when the role of the law enforcement officer has become a matter of great public concern.-- Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, Author, On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society

In the follow up to her award winning book Hearts Beneath the Badge , author Karen Solomon partnered with Jeffrey M. McGill to pen The Price They Pay , a raw look at the impact of policing on the people who don the uniform each day. Exposing the difficulties that officers face in a professional culture that traditionally demands silence about their feelings, The Price They Pay is a gritty composition that gets current and former LEOs to open up about the demons they face and how they cope, or have failed to cope, with their world that was shaped by the law enforcement profession. In an effort to humanize what many view as a superhuman profession, Solomon and McGill explore the emotional damage that is the end result of dealing with exposure to death, dismemberment, pain, suffering, conflict, fear, anger, scrutiny, vilification as well as societal and organizational pressures. Sharing stories of hope and failure gives all that have the courage to read this book a true picture of the direct and collateral damage LEO s endure each day. Solomon and McGill look beyond the uniform and put a human face on the law enforcement profession, providing the average citizen a glimpse into the hardships faced by peace officers and their families on a daily basis. --Capt. Barry M. Thomas, Chief Deputy Story County Sheriff s Office (IA) President, FBI National Academy Associates 2015-2016

Traumatic Stress within the policing environment is a real injury. Although there are no slings...crutches or bandages the consequences can be far reaching to the point where suicide may be the only option of consideration for the involved member. The Price They Pay is a unique blend of impactful short stories mixed with educational portions on what Post Traumatic Stress actually is and how it invades the very being of individual police officers during their careers. Left untreated it can lead to disastrous consequences for the member, their family and co-workers. We must remember that our police personnel are Heroes in Life...Not Death. --Sgt. Bill Rusk, Executive Director, Badge of Life Canada

Karen Solomon and Jeffrey McGill have effectively captured and shared the powerful stories of the emotional, psychological, physiological, relational, and spiritual consequences of a career in law enforcement in their book The Price They Pay. Our nation's police officers are now confronted with an increase in some of the most challenging and potentially deadly situations and encounters in our history. It is imperative that all officers recognize and embrace the impact of their chosen profession so that they may strive to make better and more resilient choices to not only survive but thrive in their lives. The first and most courageous step often begins with asking for help and this book opens the door to expose the humanness in all of us. --Tina Jaeckle, Ph.D., L.C.S.W., B.C.E.T.S., F.N.C.C.M., Crisis and Trauma Expert, Law Enforcement and First Responders
