Available NOW!

I’m happy to announce release of my memoir, “What I Couldn’t Leave Behind: My Career as A Cop” available now through Amazon.com. 

In it, I’ll take you on a journey as you see how a kid who always wanted to become a firefighter became a hometown cop instead. We’ll go through the Chicago Police Academy and head out on patrol where you’ll experience what being a police officer was like through my eyes. Humor, tragedy, and surprises are all there in this story that gives a view of that occupation that you don’t often see on television.

After I retire, you’ll get a chance to witness some of the lasting effects the job had on me and how I try to undo them.

This is a book for anyone interested in a career in law enforcement, anyone who has someone close to them who is interested in such a career, and anyone who wants to know more about what it’s like to wear a badge, carry a gun, and be the one who is sent when there is trouble.

Rank has no bearing on the trauma we witness or the stress we experience. Each one of us has his or her own story. This just happens to be mine.
