riveting probe into the inner trials and tribulations that
many members of the law enforcement community
endure during the course of their public service
careers. The author applies her honed investigative skills
to put the human dimension on full display. She artfully
draws back the curtains that shroud the inner sanctuary
of the police world and then escorts the reader into that
inner circle. In one sense, this book is the law
enforcement version of Dante's Inferno. Some travelers
emerge relatively unscathed; others grapple mightily with
their inner turmoil. Eventually, they forge ahead and gain
passage to an entirely new path in their journey through

"As a retired law enforcement officer, BEHIND AND
BEYOND THE BADGE made me proud as I read it. I
know how special the folks were that I worked with for so
many years, but to read about the people contained
within these pages was just inspirational. This book is for
everyone, first responder or not. It's a fast read with a
huge 'wow factor' at the end of each story."

collection of stories coming straight from the law
enforcement and first-responder communities. The
stories provide details and highlights of hard-earned
careers to include tragic officer deaths, violent crimes,
and the bitter worst of humanity. But through it all, the
duty of service persevered, and they survived to make it
to the next stage in life, what new author Donna Brown
calls 'Phase 2.' Brown, a retired police officer with an
incredible resume in her own right, believes that making
it to retirement to enjoy life in the next phase is what
each and every law enforcement officer should strive
for. She sums it up with a great quote, 'You spent many
years giving OF yourself; it's time to give TO yourself.'
For the past, present, and future law enforcement
officers and first responders, this is a must read.
