Over twenty years ago, Sarah Cortez left a flourishing corporate career to strap on a gun, and police the streets. Transitioning from designer heels and a high-rise office to a low-bid, agency-owned Crown Vic wasn't easy, but it delivered exactly what she desired. In these highly-charged personal reflections, Cortez reveals the complicated machinery of a cop's heart, mind, and soul by dissecting the differences between cops and civilians. A must-read to understand the intangibles demanded by policing-courage, determination, patience, and a belief in justice-despite the grimy backdrop where life can become death in an instant.
