Randy Sutton is at it again. The lieutenant with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has already written two books about law enforcement. Now, his latest work – TRUE BLUE: To Protect and Serve – has been published by St. Martin’s Press. And Randy is in DC for National Police Week using his newest collection of true-life police stories to help raise awareness and funds for the National Law Enforcement Museum.
The book contains dozens of stories written by cops themselves. Some of the tales will amuse and shock readers, from the chapters entitled “War Stories” and “The Beat.” And there are incredible stories told about life-changing experiences, including the deaths of fellow officers, in chapters called “Line of Duty” and “The Fallen.” John Langley, creator of the “COPS” television program, remarked, “these pages bring to vivid reality the real stories of cops whose guts and glory are seldom seen and rarely heard.”
TRUE BLUE: To Protect and Serve is available through the NLEOMF Visitors Center and online gift shop. All proceeds from sales through the NLEOMF are being donated by Lt. Sutton in support of the first-ever National Law Enforcement Museum in Washington, DC. And Randy was at the Visitors Center this week signing copies of the book. That’s just one of his many National Police Week duties, which also included serving in the LVMPD Honor Guard, escorting survivors to the Candlelight Vigil, and speaking to fellow Law Enforcement Ambassadors – officers from across the country who pledge to spread the word and raise money in their communities about the Memorial Fund.
