Above and Beyond: Heartfelt Stories of the American Police Officer is a compilation of positive stories highlighting the spectacular way law enforcement officers interact with citizens across this great nation. With negative headlines and hateful rhetoric being spewed daily on social media platforms and news networks, Ronnie Malina challenges the narrative that all cops are bad with heartwarming stories of hope, compassion, and love. During a time when the honor, integrity, and professionalism of our officers are in constant question, this book showcases how police officers routinely go above and beyond to help those they have sworn an oath to serve.
“The stories in this book point up some of the superlative behavior of these brothers and sisters of the ‘thin blue line.’ They help to redress the balance and restore faith at a time when the media presents so much negativity about these essential public servants. I truly believe that the vast majority of the members of the various Police services have joined for the right reasons and care deeply for the communities they serve. I laughed and sometimes cried while reading these short, punchy stories, each with its clear and usually optimistic message.” Roger Ley, Bestselling author of Chronoscape, The Muslim Prince, and The Steampunk Adventures of Harry Lampeter.
