BEHIND AND BEYOND THE BADGE - Volume II: STORIES FROM THE VILLAGE OF FIRST RESPONDERS WITH COPS, FIREFIGHTERS, EMS, DISPATCHERS, FORENSICS, AND VICTIM ADVOCATES
2019 FAPA President's Book Awards Winner - Non-Fiction (Silver), Political/Current Events (Gold)
There is so much more to a police officer's badge, to any badge that all first responders wear. But that's what the world sees--a badge. What's behind and beyond that badge is what people need to know--the person. In BEHIND AND BEYOND THE BADGE, Volume 2, award-winning author Donna Brown takes you to those places that few see. First responders have opened their hearts and shared what it's truly like to do their jobs, their favorite parts of the job and their toughest, career defining moments and the impact it has on their families. They are human just like you, and each faces all that life has to offer, good and bad.
Included are law enforcement officers, firefighters, EMS personnel, 911 dispatchers, crime scene/forensic technicians and victim advocates. All what Donna Brown calls her Village of First Responders. This book and Volume I, are perfect for those who are thinking about becoming a first responder, those who have family or friends who are first responders, those who want to know more and for those who are suspect of the law enforcement profession. This book offers a unique and thought provoking perspective from those who do the job.
