MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is an essential read for anyone interested in working with or wishing to understand the police culture. The nature of police work requires much and can be tremendously impactful on personalities - both individually and collectively. Needing help or not, police officers don't leave their culture very far or very often. And, if they do, they remain a cautious and vigilant group. The authors have provided a most excellent resource for anyone who intends to be at ease in and among the pride." -- Paul Whitesell, PhD, Former Superintendent, Indiana State Police Department, Board Certified (Diplomate) Forensic Examiner for the American College of Forensic Examiners; Police Psychotherapist
