These are the'stories about the men and women with whom I worked during my fourteen years as a New York City Police Officer. I'm sharing these stories with you so you might understand what a cop goes through during his career and how he might react to situations. Urban police officers and officers patrolling smaller communities are subject to the'same situations, reactions and dangers. Their response and handling calls for service are often based on their attitudes. Attitudes learned long before they pin a badge on their uniform. Although some of what you read will shock you, don't be too quick to criticize the actions taken. Take a deep breath, close the book, and put yourself momentarily in the'same situation. I said momentarily because a decision a street cop makes is often made in seconds. Now, read on--but before you begin, strap on the gun belt, button up the blue shirt, straighten the hat, and walk out from the precinct remembering one thing: once those heavy brass doors close behind you...you become the fine line between a civilized society that acts within the law and those who choose to act outside it.
