About this product
- DescriptionProceeds of this book will go to law enforcement charities. 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 t about the crimes they witness or the judgment 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 the people we often don't see because we are blinded by the uniform. They are among the hundreds of thousands that are unseen each day, the men and women that go back for more 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. Hearts Beneath the Badge is a book about the good deeds officers perform. There is a pressing need for people to see more than just the officer's hearts; they need to see their souls. Society as a whole needs to accept police officers for who they are - mere mortals. In order to do that, they must look through the layers of the officer's lives and see the heartache and joy, the same heartaches and joy we all experience. Society also needs to kw that, whether we want to admit it or t, there is a price to be paid for pursing the love of the law. The charities that will benefit from this book are National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund, Safe Call Now, Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) and PoliceWives.
