Real Life on the Streets

by Jim Hogan

Overview
This book consists of a series of anecdotal experiences of a police officer in a small, but growing, police department in the suburban Denver area.  Although set in the 1960's and 70's, it is easily translatable to today's law enforcement experience.  It's aim is to bring a better understanding to the general public of the realities of police work on a daily basis, as well as to describe the kinds of incidents to which those who are, or were, in law enforcement can easily relate.  It is at times comical, at times tragic, and at times heart warming. The author does not attempt to sugar coat the language used or the prevailing attitudes of the times described.  With no hint of "preaching", the book provides an eloquent look at the camaraderie and sense of family which was common in the law enforcement community at that time and which continues to this day.
