About the Author

Dave DiBetta's government career began in the early '80s after graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree from SUNY Fredonia. Dave enrolled in the U.S. Army and served in the military police where he represented First Army at the All-Army Pistol Championship. Following his military service, he worked for the IRS in the underwriter's program until he received a full-time position as a Customs Inspector at JFK International Airport in New York. While at Customs, Dave applied for a position with Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, and for the next 22 ½ years he served as an ATF Special Agent. At the conclusion of his ATF career in 2009, Delaware U.S. Senator Kaufman read Dave's biography on the Senate floor.
Among his many achievements, Dave revitalized the local chapter for the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association in Delaware. He became its chapter president before later serving as Agency President, representing all ATF agents nationwide.

A bold, swashbuckling federal agent and an articulate corporate wordsmith team up to share a spellbinding view inside a criminal justice career. A dynamic must read from beginning to end!!! DiBetta's deeply personal story from college to Army M.P., to U.S. Customs, Air Marshall, IRS, and AFT tells of training, technology, fieldwork, strategies, courtrooms, emotions, and questions. Fasnacht transforms these complex issues into clear, exciting text. Now retired near the ocean and looking back, DiBetta says, "It was cool! ... I'm happy where I am today ... my wife still likes me and my boat still works!"
