It Was the Best of Days!
It Was the Worst of Days!
An Honest, Raw and Real Account of Policing.
Welcome to a Normal Day in the Life of a Police Officer!
It Was the Best of Days, It Was the Worst of Days is a compilation of short stories by 13 past and present Police Officers. This is followed by Dee’s own life experiences of having Police deliver the tragic news of her father and brother dying in two separate traffic crashes 82 days apart when she was a child, and her own career ending due to a life-altering experience. It delves into the depths of describing a good day on the job and a bad day on the job, and how each one dealt with the highs and lows of being a Police Officer. This gripping reading will draw you into the lives of these Police Officer’s and that of their families and take you on a journey as to how the job has affected them and where they are today.
During the writing of this book, Dee saw a common thread of police suffering with PTSD due to the things they see and the things they have experienced on an average day on the job. This has prompted Dee to expand on this in a second book in the future and highlight the fact that PTSD needs to be addressed prior to it becoming an issue rather than after. Certain things will never leave a police officer, they usually learn to live with it or heal from it.
