Meet the Author

Bill Sharp grew up in Lacombe and Barrhead, Alberta, where he became interested in becoming a policeman at an early age. In 1968 he joined the RCMP, and after basic training he worked in nine detachments in the Metro Vancouver and West Kootenay areas of BC. All of his career in the Force was in uniform general duty where he served as a first-responder, patrol supervisor, watch commander, and a member of the Emergency Response Team. Among other awards he has earned in his service, he was honoured by the Insurance Corporation of BC for his dedicated impaired driving enforcement and the instructing of DUI investigations. Sharp retired from the RCMP in 2011. He is the father of two children, and he and his wife live in Langley, BC.

A mix of humor and serious events make this book about police work very interesting.
joeyardinski More than 1 year ago
The writer deserves praise because he did a good job in telling his stories, personal experiences and cases that he worked on in his police career that started in 1968 and ended in 2011. I thoroughly enjoyed the book from start to finish.

I found myself smiling, if not chuckling a lot of the time as I read this book. Interesting memoir that tells of a large variety of cases and stories.

A well written memoir of the author's time in the RCMP. The personal stories have the ring of truth to them and most are funny; although there are sad incidents too. Enlightening and interesting. I enjoyed the book. Don A.
