When most people think of the police-cops-they think of scenarios seen on TV or read in the newspapers, with valiant law enforcement crime fighters battling drug dealers, organized crime, mobsters, gangs, and criminals of all kinds. But as author Scott Baker, former NYPD officer tells and shows us is that the thing that cops want most is to help people in simple, everyday ways.
A Warmer Shade of Blue Stories About Good Things Cops Do is a collection of heartwarming, inspiring TRUE stories about the good things that cops do above and beyond their law enforcement duties. Baker tells of cops who spend their own time and money, on the job and off, to help the elderly, the young, and the sick cope with their problems in life. Stories of cops on the beat buying toys for kids at Christmas, or feeding and clothing the homeless, from helping troubled kids stay on the right path or helping a sick child be blessed by the Pope, Baker shares stories of how police officers are constantly battling crime and indifference while displaying the depth of warmth and humanity behind the badge.
After reading these stories, you'll know it's true.
A Warmer Shade of Blue Stories About Good Things Cops Do truly bridges the gap between the police and the community and has already won the Best Book of the Year Award from The International Union Of Police Associations AFL- CIO.
