The following writings are my recall of several events that occurred in my 19 years as a police officer. I retired from law enforcement in 2000, and have been asked to commit my memorable moments to written form. That which you are about to read are events that remain with me, being 16 years removed from duty. These are as factually true as my brain cells allow. While these jottings may not stand out to most as the consummate thriller, it does reflect the reality of the times and, to a degree, a different political and sociological climate than contemporary times. To repeat (with some variation) the pro-show dialogue from the show television show “Dragnet”, the names have been changed so as to minimize the damage.
