Officers: Share Your Stories & Help Build a Museum

Do you have a good law enforcement story to tell? Then Ed Nowicki wants to hear from you.

Mr. Nowicki, part-time police officer in Twin Lakes (WI), law enforcement training expert and author, is looking for submissions for his new book, “American Blue.” It is a compilation of police stories from officers across the nation. All stories — funny, weird, touching, dramatic — are welcome for consideration.

In addition to being part of this exciting project, authors will also be helping to build the first-ever National Law Enforcement Museum in Washington, DC. Mr. Nowicki has generously agreed to donate all royalties from “American Blue” to the Museum, set to open in 2013.

To be a part of this project, please email Ed at All stories should be submitted as an MS Word file. Please direct all questions to (262) 279-7879, and ask for the “American Blue Writer’s Package.” If your story is included in “American Blue,” you will receive one complimentary copy of the book upon publication.

In addition to serving as a part-time officer in Twin Lakes, Mr. Nowicki is a nationally recognized use-of-force expert and executive director-emeritus of the International Law Enforcement Educators and Trainers Association (ILEETA). Mr. Nowicki’s first book, “True Blue,” is out of print after two printings.
