If you ever wondered what it’s like to be a big city cop, read this book.

Every day, men and women put themselves in danger’s way to protect the rest of us. They often go without thanks. They experience being shot at, disrespected, working long hours for far less pay than they deserve, and they do it over and over again because, quite simply, they are heroes who believe in law and justice and making the world safe for the rest of us. In On Being a Cop, two of those heroes tell their stories of heartbreak, of triumph, of incredible death-defying rescues, and of tender moments that will make you shake your head, wondering how anyone could be brave and strong enough to do what they do. You will come away feeling incredibly thankful to know they are at work while you are sleeping and all other hours of the day. May God bless them all.Ph.D. and award-winning author of The Best Place
