Donna Brown began her twenty- six-year career in law enforcement when women were still relatively new to the profession. Like most new police officers, Donna began her career working the streets answering calls for service. She then started training new recruits and turned that passion into teaching department wide, at the academy, and to community groups.

I explained the premise of my book and why I wanted to write it but also posed many questions. They patiently answered these questions but the advice I received was consistent with each of them..........just write! They all assured me that everything else would eventually fall into place and they were right. So I'll pass this on to other aspiring writer's. Find people that are published and are willing to spend some time with you, get answers to your questions but know that you will have more and that's okay. The learning process was part of the adventure. Most importantly, I agree with each of my mentors......just write!(less)

Review of Behind and Beyond the Badge: Volume II By Author Sam Staley

Themes of pervasive corruption, racial insensitivity, and excessive force in American law enforcement have become so common they have become cliche in popular media. This is usually a good indicator we need to step back, take a deep breath, and gain some perspective. One of the best places to start should be former police officer and detective Donna Brown’s captivating and illuminating book, Behin Read more of this blog post »
