Detective Mitch Speed served with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department for sixteen years, during which time he was publicly recognized as representing "the best of law enforcement in terms of respect for citizens, respect for his community, and a commitment to exemplary service above all else."

In his personal life Mitch was esteemed as a loving husband, father, mentor, and worship leader committed to helping others and serving God. After being diagnosed in 2016 with stage‑4 cancer, Mitch spent countless hours in front of his computer penning a book initially intended for family and friends. However, since its original release in 2017, Mitch Speed-The Man Behind the Badge has been reprinted multiple times after finding its way into the hands and hearts of Americans of all walks of life.

This second edition features all the original cherished stories and poetry of cowboy-cop philosopher Mitch Speed. It also includes messages from Vickie Speed and Brodie Speed, Mitch's wife and son, as well as additional content discovered posthumously on his computer.

And now, we welcome you to the ever-growing number of "Speed Readers" blessed to spend time with the inspiring and soul-nurturing words of Mitch Speed, the man behind the badge.
