Overview

Overview

This book opens with a warning that the names of persons and places have been changed to protect the innocent and—in some cases—the guilty. Needless to say, this is not a book destined for police academy libraries. Initial chapters describe situations which the author encountered at his police academy: an attack by a barbed wire fence, a hazing gone wrong, a drunken golfer, and the surprise of one class to discover that their crusty old drill sergeant actually had a sense of humor. Subsequent chapters cover pranks from the author’s years as a young police officer: paying one’s dues, learning the ropes firsthand, discovering the difference between academy lessons and real police work, making-the-monkey of co-workers and clients, the exploits of a high school condom salesman, courtroom antics and even a mock hanging. Later stories include those of a disrupted honeymoon, a traffic check of a naked motorist, a farting-muffler, a domestic dispute involving a pig, negotiations with a mad bomber, returning a victim to the murder scene and judges who suffered no mischief in their courts.

After reading this book, you’ll understand why the author wishes to remain anonymous; that’s correct, “Wyatt Holmes” is a nom de plume.
