About the Author

Dale Hoagland is the grandson of a deputy sheriff who led his family to California's Central Valley during the Dust Bowl. He was lucky enough to have had a long and distinguished career in law enforcement.
Starting at age nineteen he worked as a correctional officer among hardened criminals in the prisons of Tuolumne County, before joining the Berkeley Police Department. As a rural valley kid working as a Berkeley rookie in the early 70s, he found himself chasing Black Panthers, fighting on riot lines and learning how to survive in a big city. He later became a narcotics officer in the rural communities of the Central Valley, where he joined a group of fellow narcs who experienced the drug wars of the 1970s from undercover and often from outside the lines of institutional authority.
Hoagland has an AA, BA, and MA in Police Science, Sociology and Criminology and has been a prison guard, police officer, deputy sheriff, state agent, and federal agent. His assignments have included narcotics, swat, hostage negotiations, range master, defensive tactics instructor, and detective. He held the rank of narcotic team leader, sergeant, and lieutenant as well as police academy director. He's a life time member of California Narcotics Officer Association and currently teaching in a law enforcement program.
