Synopsis

During his 25 years with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, Dean Scoville advanced from nervous recruit to seasoned patrol sergeant to silver-tongued spokesperson. His candid memoir chronicles the personal experiences of police work-the tedium of guarding jail inmates versus the consternation of shoot/don't-shoot scenarios-and offers an insider's view of iconic moments in law enforcement, including the capture of ""Night Stalker"" Richard Ramirez and the 1992 L.A. Riots. Along the way he examines a profession increasingly beleaguered by inimical agendas, administrative cowardice and fiscal restraints.
