    Police writers wanted for "True Blue II"

    Police Writers Wanted for TRUE BLUE II

    June 13, 2007 (San Dimas, CA) Police-Writers. com, a website dedicated to listing state and local police officers who have authored books, announced that one of the listed authors, Lieutenant Randy Sutton, has begun work on his latest book by collecting stories written by, and about, police officers.

    Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Lieutenant Randy Sutton, who published TRUE BLUE, Police Stories by Those Who Have Lived Them (2003) has announced that he is collecting stories by active duty and former police officers for a second edition of the acclaimed book. More than $30,000 was donated to the NY Police and Fire Widows and Children's Fund as a result of royalties from sales of the books which are still available in hard cover and paperback in bookstores and at AMAZON.COM; as is his latest book, A Cop's Life. Lieutenant Randy Sutton is going to donate partial proceeds from the second edition to the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund in Washington D.C. and the book will be used as a fund raising tool by the organization.

    "The written word is the most powerful tool we possess" Sutton said in his announcement, "and through our words, we create unity amongst ourselves and build bridges of understanding to the people that we serve."

    According to Sutton, stories can be anywhere between two to ten pages in length and the subjects can be amusing, sad, serious or whimsical. "Police work brings out all of our emotions" says Sutton, "and the stories in the book will simply reflect that. I'm looking for cops who have something to say, regardless of their writing experience." Lieutenant Randy Sutton is especially interested in stories about fallen officers for the section entitled "Officer Down." "There can be no better tribute to the policeofficers who gave their lives than to have their stories memorialized forever in this book." Sutton said.

    To submit a story, you can contact Sutton at www.truebluestories .com or send a hard copy to him at 2250 E. Tropicana Ave. PMB 19-735 Las Vegas NV 89119. Please include your contact information.

    Police-Writers. com now hosts 576 police officers (representing 242 police departments) and their 1216 books in six categories, there are also listings of United States federal law enforcement employees turned authors, international police officers who have written books and civilian police personnel who have written books.

    He sure has done a lot for LE. I'm putting all the books on my "to buy list".

    Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.

    Kind of you to suggest. I couldn't even guess what I'd send him, though.

    Sir, given I know you personally, it would be a detraction from his publication for you not to contribute. Get to thinkin'. Now!

    Another great book: "What Cops Know"

    Countybear, I just want a signed copy of YOUR book when you write it.

    I haven't read True Blue, but I definitely will...

    I was reading a great little book called "What Cops Know", by Connie Fletcher before my wife started reading it - She could hardly put it down, now I gotta find it and take it back from her.

    "What Cops Know" was published in 1990, but you can still find used copies on eBay and Amazon for a couple of bucks. It interviews 125 Chicago cops and was compiled by subjects, but the unique thing is that it prints their comments verbatum with no editing, as though it was just 125 cops sitting in a room chatting - I think it would be facinating to bring back as many of those same cops as possible, put them in a room, and film a documentary of them just re-telling the stories that they have in the book, in the same order.

    Needless to say, they had some very harsh and bitter things to say about the crap that they see, and some very sarcastic humor which I love.

    If any of you are interested in Armed Police work in England I can recommend, The Trojan Files by Roger Gray. I was his Instructor .

    Guys, I am a bargain shopper as well, but if there is any way that interested readers can buy the book full price, please do so! The proceeds go to various LE charities...a great cause!

    I am thinking of cooking something up for the book.
    "If anything worthwhile comes of this tragedy, it should be the realization by every citizen that often the only thing that stands between them and losing everything they hold dear... is the man wearing a badge." -- Ronald Reagan, in the wake of the deaths of 4 CHP troopers in the Newhall Incident, 1970

    The opinions given in my posts DO NOT reflect the opinions, views, policies, and/or procedures of my employing agency. They are my personal opinions only, thereby releasing my agency of any liability, or involvement in anything posted under the username "121Traffic" on O/R.
