Author reveals shocking stories and realities of how it is to be a police officer.

His philosophical mind, professional experience, personal encounters, and other social factors all contribute to what and who he is today. In his mission To Serve and Protect, author Edward L. Hannon chronicles some interesting moments, points, ideas, and events in his life as a police officer through thought-provoking, intriguing, and amusing essays in this newly published book.

This is a story of thirteen years worth of chronicling a man/police officer’s journey through the scope of his life and occupation to transcend his expected performance on the police department while not lying docile to be parted with a police administration’s inept leadership.

This book is going to expose the intimate details of a quota system mandated by a police administration. Readers will be shocked, appalled, amused, heartbroken, excited, and vindicated because it is extremely candid. People speak in the cliché sense of being a rebel within the scope of their occupation; this book exemplifies how one authentic rebel did just that.

“I am not presenting this work to elicit favor for the police department, nor am I trying to impugn its overall objective. I just would like people to understand the life of those who have to strap on a bulletproof vest and gun to safeguard a populace while contending with a zealous administration, which is set on waging fear on its personnel in order to overcompensate for their inadequacies,” shares Hannon.

The author will leave the reader as the jury to determine whether he is a hero or a villain encapsulated within the garment of a blue police suit. To be able to judge, they must first immerse themselves in his story.
