  • Cops turned Authors!!

    I'm looking for a book, that was written by a Chicago copper! I can't remember the title or the name of the cop, but was wonder'n if anyone could list any ex- or retired chicago coppers who wrote and/ or published any tell alls or biography's of any sort. If I see the cops name or the title I'll know it when I see it. I saw it in a mens magazine as a book for men should read, and me being a cop, I would like to get to read. Any assistance from my brothers in blue, or brown would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in adviance.

    Their are two books written by Connie Fletcher about life on the streets as a Chicago Police Officer:

    1) WHAT COPS KNOW
    2) PURE COP

    Don't know if either of those are the one's you are talking about, but they are both good reads anyways.

      DAVID (thanks for the correction ChiTownDet) Case wrote "Out of Cabrini". Or something to that nature.

      Otherwise, Borders has a very wide selection of books be cops.

        Tom Case's book was pretty good.
        Tom Cline wrote a couple books. Don't remember the names but I've seen them sold a couple places.

          Juan Antonio Juarez wrote Brotherhood of Corruption. It's a pretty good read.

                    Cops turned authors...

                    Thanks everyone for all the feedback, really appreciate it. If anyone is looking for a good read, look for, "Under and Alone" by William Queen. Former ATF agent who infiltrated the Mongols MC. I'm not a big reader but I couldn't put it down. Great gift for a copper. Thanks again everyone, and Happy Holidays....

                          A former professor of mine at UIC wrote a book but it was a text book. It was on police and training. Forgot the name of the book but his name is Gene Scaramella. I guess it's more of the educational types of book, it talks about the importance of training and education (not necessarily academic) for officers and the potential consequences for lack of training, etc.
