His stories offer an additional perspective, that is rarely reported in the mainstream media from a law enforcement officer who has stood along the thin blue line.

From Amazon.com, Call Me Trooper is filled with intense action, intriguing investigations, and uproarious humor. You are guaranteed to laugh, you might cry, but you will definitely be absorbed in these reports from the front lines of law enforcement.

Trauma is a regular part of this calling. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD impacts police officers as much as front line military personnel. Those who wear the badge encounter death and very traumatic scenes for years, if not decades. The men and women who are called upon to help in so many types of situations often have a hard time reaching out for help themselves. This is a topic that needs additional light shed upon it. Here the issue of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is highlighted from a firsthand vantage point. The problem is real, “trauma often begets trauma.”
