9 square miles. 10,000 criminals. 130 cops. A riveting memoir by Baker, California's most-decorated police officer Compton: the most violent and crime-ridden city in America. What had been a semi-rural suburb of Los Angeles in the 1950s became a battleground for the Black Panthers and Malcolm X Foundation, the home of the Crips and Bloods and the first Hispanic gangs, and the cradle of gangster rap. At the center of it, trying to maintain order was the Compton Police Department, never more than 130-strong, and facing an army of criminals that numbered over 10,000. At any given time, fully one-tenth of Compton's population was in prison, yet this tidal wave of crime was held back by the thinnest line of the law—the Compton Police. John R. Baker was raised in Compton, eventually becoming the city's most decorated officer involved in some of its most notorious, horrifying and scandalous criminal cases. Baker's account of Compton from 1950 to 2001 is one of the most powerful and compelling cop memoirs ever written—an intensely human account of sacrifice and public service, and the price the men and women of the Compton Police Department paid to preserve their city.

These real life stories from crime fighting's front line come from cops of every rank, from chiefs to street cops, working in big cities and small towns all over the US. The result is a stunning montage of brutal, funny and sometimes tragic true events which paints a vivid and unforgettable portrait of life as an American cop.

A police reporter offers an up-close look inside the daily lives of North Carolina’s state troopers. Like most law enforcement, their shifts can be filled with long stretches of tedium. They stay at the roadside, watching vehicles rush by, occasionally handing out a speeding ticket or pulling over a drunk driver. Then, suddenly, it can all turn dangerous, when someone pulls a weapon—or heartbreaking, when they are called to the scene of a wreck. This portrait of North Carolina’s elite Highway Patrol recounts both the drama and the day-to-day detail of these state troopers’ lives and work. In interviews and anecdotes, troopers relate stories of manhunts, narrow misses, breathtaking confrontations, strange and hilarious encounters with the public, and aiding the injured and dying in highway accidents, while troopers’ spouses—and widows—tell of the heart-wrenching realities trooper families face. It’s a fascinating look inside a little-known profession, and the lives of the men and women who watch over us as we travel along—preferably obeying traffic laws as we go.

To his neighbors on Imperial Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio, Anthony Sowell was a quiet and helpful former Marine who played chess and hosted summer barbeques in his front yard. But there was a dark side to Sowell-and a horrific secret inside his house. In mid-2007, Crystal Dozier, 38, made plans to visit Sowell. She was never seen again. Over the next two years, ten more Cleveland women disappeared. Their families filed missing persons reports. Police say their search efforts were hampered by the women's transient lifestyles. But the families say police considered their loved ones "disposable" and didn't take their disappearances seriously. On October 29, 2009, a SWAT team entered Sowell's house to arrest him on a sex charge. Nearly overcome by the stench of decaying flesh, police encountered a nightmarish scene: a skull was found in the basement and the remains of eleven women were scattered throughout the house and buried in the backyard. Sowell, a sexual sadist, had lured his victims to his personal House of Horrors with promises of drugs and alcohol. He then raped, tortured, and strangled them...and lived among their rotting corpses. Five other women were attacked by Sowell but lived to tell their stories. Book jacket.

Detroit was once known as Murder City. Although it still has its share of violence and crime, the Detroit of the 1970's was a war zone, with more than seven hundred homicides a year. In Murder City, police officers had to act more like the lawmen of the Old West. They had to be constantly ready for things to go south, quickly. Author and former Detroit Police Department officer A. W. Boudreau was in the thick of the violence. He survived, but not all of his coworkers were so lucky. Four times as many cops died in seventies-era Detroit as do today. After completing extensive police academy training, Boudreau graduated and joined the Seventh Precinct of the Detroit Police Department in 1970. The reminders that his job was a dangerous one were all around him. The widow of a fellow officer killed in action attended the graduation ceremony, leaving Boudreau with a haunting memory of her sorrow. He devoted his career to making the streets safer for the innocent victims of violence. Boudreau's memoir will give you a new perspective on the difficulties big-city cops face every day on the job.

Hollywood makes police work look inspiring and noble. News stations heavily edit stories of crime to avoid overly upsetting viewers. Courtrooms are full of spun tales that are little better than lies. Only the beat cop really knows the gritty truth of dealing with the worst humanity has to offer. Beat Cop presents the stories beat cops tell each other-an oral history of experiences passed down to rookies in police departments across the nation. Each of these tales is true and reveals a harsh world few outside the beat cops' world understand. Ben Celano, himself a twenty-two-year veteran of the Chicago streets, presents his fellow officers' most harrowing and memorable tales. Their recollections are not for the weak of heart: these are tales of drugged-out lunatics, homicides, shootings, rapes, and bitterly violent domestic disputes. These are the streets, as seen from the point of view of the beat cop. Some may respond to these stories with outrage or shock, but such responses don't make the officers' stories any less true. This is the reality in which brave men and women live their lives and serve their communities. They should be respected, and their stories should be told.

After September 11, 2001 Las Vegas Police Sergeant Randy Sutton began soliciting writing from law enforcement officers-his goal being to bridge the gap between the police and those they serve, with a book that offers a broad and thoughtful look at the many facets of police life. Hundreds of active and former officers responded from all over the United States: men and women from big cities and small towns, some who had written professionally, but most for the first time. Sutton culled the selections into five categories: The Beat, Line of Duty, War Stories, Officer Down, and Ground Zero. The result is True Blue, a collection of funny, charming, exciting, haunting stories about murder investigations, missing children, bungling burglars, car chases, lonely and desperate shut-ins, routine traffic stops, officers killed in the line of duty, and the life-changing events of September 11. Here, officers reveal their emotions-fear and pride, joy and disgust, shame and love-as they recount the defining moments of their careers. In these stories, the heart and soul behind the badge shines through in unexpected ways. True Blue will change the way we think about the deeply human realm of police service.
