This powerful book is a compilation of submissions from law enforcement professionals who seek to share the hard earned lessons acquired throughout out their careers. Regardless of whether you are a lawman, just starting your journey as a law enforcement professional, or are a seasoned officer the stories in this book have the potential to enhance your career and change your life.
There is an age old question, “The easy way or the hard way?” The series, “If I Knew Then” allows any officer to learn the easy way, what well respected law enforcement professionals learned the hard way.
The contributors offer rock solid advice on a variety of topics. For example Chip Huth paves the way for readers to follow “The Warrior’s Path,” and prepare officers to prevail in all struggles faced on the street. Harvey Hedden enlightens the reader on how to prevail, during the struggles that occur within a police agency. Brian Willis gives the reader an eye opening perspective that will help officers emotionally survive in both arenas.
We’ve all had a trainer, who shared advice, a tactic, or philosophy that was so profound and meaningful that we internalized it, carried it with us and made it our own throughout our careers. This trainer was the proverbial “Yoda,” who seemed to know everything that we wanted to know and needed to know. Some of us survived the dangers of law enforcement, because that trainer was willing to share.
