Lieutenant Randy Sutton's fascinating collection of stories and memories, solicited from law enforcement officers across the country, offers a broad and insightful look at the many facets of police life: courage, exhilaration, frustration, loss, and even humor--from the everyday to the career-defining moments on the job. Told by the cops who lived them, the stories in True Blue   show what it truly means to protect and serve.

Readers will come to recognize the faces behind the badge, as they witness officers charge into the unknown on The Beat, honor and mourn friends in The Fallen, hear the War Stories spread in police locker rooms and bars, discover the unbreakable line between civilian and cop in the Line of Duty, and feel the blood-boiling adrenaline during those life-altering moments when a cop must use Deadly Force.

Very interesting to hear first-hand accounts of cops. Often, things in the media are not portrayed from their side of things. Somewhat disturbing in a multi-layered way, seeing as some cops did, seemingly unknowingly, perpetuate violence, racism, and dangerous generalizations even in the ways they told their stories. All the stories are told from a male perspective, which I thought was interesting.
