Everything You Wanted to Know About the Heroes in Blue

12.99 USD
The wall between society and those with the potential to cause harm is made up of the men and women in blue. Lining the pages of this book is a tribute to their endless hours, hidden pain, and tears shed in silence. They protect a community that curses them one day and then thanks them the next. This selfless act is done daily by heroes who never ask for or expect a "thank you." They just want to protect and serve the innocent. They long to do their part in keeping society safe for the rest of us. The media often showcases them in a negative and violent manner. I would like to know....Where is the media when these officers are looking in the tear-filled eyes of abused children or consoling a struggling couple about to break down emotionally? Where is the media when the officers have fallen and their lives succumb to injuries from people who thought it would be better to take the officer's life than get a ticket? Where is the media when they are rescuing people from flash floods? When they are saving those broke down on the highway? Or when they are rescuing hostages? Get a glimpse of what life is like for Correction Officers – the Forgotten Cops. Discover fascinating facts including the first female to pin on a badge. The first police officer killed in the line of duty. The first person arrested for drinking and driving. In the end, retrace the steps of the last hours of officers killed in the line of duty. Along the pages of this book you will learn everything you wanted to know about the heroes in blue.
