He's A Cop (Paperback)
In this heartfelt and personal narrative, Officer Seth Williams shares real stories from his law enforcement career that has made the introduction, "He's a cop," an unfavorable one. Foreword by Lieutenant Brandon Chapin.
When meeting strangers, one of the first conversation starters is often "What do you do?" For police officers (and their families), the question feels loaded; a jovial ice breaker can quickly turn into an uncomfortably awkward Q&A with the same few questions pouring in.
● "What's it like to be a cop?"
● "What's the craziest thing you've ever seen?"
● "Have you ever shot somebody?"
● "My cousin is a cop in insert state]. Do you know him?"
● "I got a ticket this one time..."
● "What's your thoughts on...?"
For those outside of law enforcement, the questions seem benign enough. However, as Seth describes in this book, the questions that follow the statement, "He's a cop," often bring physiological and psychological responses to reliving a call.
