I am a children’s book author and my latest children’s book, “What Do Police Officers Do?” was inspired by my participation in the Citizen’s Police Academy in my hometown of Johnson City, Tennessee. Through the Johnson City Police Department, citizens are able to see what a police officer’s job entails during a 9-week class. My favorite part of the class was doing a Ride-Along with a police officer, which consisted of riding with a police officer and responding to calls. If the calls were deemed too dangerous, the citizen would be dropped off for their safety.
This story is in honor of all the police officers who risk their lives daily to protect the citizens and communities they swore to protect and serve, as well as in memory of all the fallen police officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
Although this story is my creation, I want it to be YOUR story, too-with your help, we will publish it and get it in the hands of children in schools, libraries, churches, daycares, police departments and anywhere else y’all want them to go to, all across the country! It is also a great gift for the special child in your life.
I will sign each book and make it out to the person or persons of your choice. I will just need the name or names of who the book will be made out to and an address to ship it to. Please specify if it is a residential address or business address.
Books retail for $15.00 each and around $5.00 for shipping, as well as a $10.00 contribution per order to go towards the publishing of the book.
The completion of the book depends on how soon we get the necessary funds, so I am hopeful our goal will be reached sooner than later to get this book into little hands all across the country. I will be providing updates on the status of the book and when it gets close to completion.
I want to thank you so very much in joining me in educating the young minds of America on the jobs that a police officer does while thanking our police officers for what they do and honoring the memories for the ones we have lost!
In Sincere Appreciation,
