Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
True stories of what is happening in hearts and minds of law enforcement.
A way to see them as what they are – human.
Hearts Beneath the Badge is a unique compilation of interviews with officers across the country. It’s not about the crimes they witness or the judgement they face; it’s about them – Damien, Danny, Frances, Ken, Pamela, Brian, and more. Their thoughts, their fears, their proud moments and their heartbreak. It’s about Jeremy and his family, a man of honor taken from the world much too soon. It’s about the people we often don’t see because we are blinded by the uniform.
None of this is sensational but for the fact that these are police officers. They are among the hundreds of thousands that are unseen each day, the men and women that go back for more no matter the personal cost. They provide meals, rides, lifesaving breaths and prosthetic legs. Yes, even prosthetic legs. There is much more to them than meets the eye–or the news camera. By reading this book, you will open yourself to a world of people you may have forgotten existed. You will see the names, families and some of the faces of the police officers that don’t make the news. Read it, share it, open someone else’s eyes. Help the world see that a person can’t be judged by the uniform they wear.
