About the Book

This book is a compelling collection of a fictional cop’s reminiscences, which really captures the essence of what it was like to be a police officer in a small northwest town, spanning a fascinating period of time . . . from back in the 1960s (when they still used typewriters and carbon copies of reports), through the 1970s and early 1980s (computers and, horror of horrors, women officers). The author’s voice, sometimes down-and-dirty, other times tinged with appealingly macho humor, rings completely true as he tells the tale of Ron O’Shea.


About the Author

Ron Coffman was in law enforcement for twenty-eight years prior to his retirement. He has been married to his wonderful wife, Peggy, for fifty-seven years. Their son, Michael is a Doctor of Optometry in Bend, Oregon, where his parents also reside. Ron is very proud of his career as a police officer. This novel is a work of fiction. In instances where names of people in “real life” have been used, permission was generously granted. Though the stories may appear to be true, the author reserves the right of creative license and embellishment. Names, characters, places and incidents are the product of the author’s imagination and are used fictitiously. Except for obvious historical figures, any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, businesses, events, or locales is entirely coincidental. “I sincerely hope you enjoy reading this as much as I did writing it” (Ron Coffman).
