Texas Police News is fortunate from time to time to be offered books and manuscripts to review,  by authors who are either in law enforcement, have served in law enforcement or have close, personal relationships with law enforcement.  Often we review these books from the time they are rough drafts, to completed manuscripts to the final, printed book.
We are happy to share these with our readers.
The books on this list fall into a very exclusive category -- books not only worth reading, but books worth owning.  Some of them may even change the way you look at the world of police officers and law enforcement.
Unless otherwise noted, the summaries are excerpts from the book -- either the cover flaps or the introduction.  Some books contain a link to the appropriate page at, Barnes & Noble, other book outlets or the publisher where you may purchase it.
