Author Info

Eliot Sefrin has been a journalist and writer for nearly 40 years. A native of Brooklyn, NY and a graduate of The City College of New York, he began his career as a newspaper reporter, covering a wide range of topics, including politics, law, business, education, health, and the environment. He later served as a feature writer and columnist, prior to becoming a newspaper and magazine editor, and subsequently a magazine publisher.


Mr. Sefrin’s wife was one of the first female police officers deployed on street patrol in New York. Her assignment, the 73rd Precinct in the poverty-stricken Brownsville section of Brooklyn, provided the inspiration and serves as the setting for Officers Down.
