If you like no-nonsense crime-busting, straight-shooting opinions, and offbeat humor, you'll love this greatest-hits collection from surprise Internet sensation Chief David A. Oliver of the Brimfield Police Department . . .
He's been called "the coolest police chief in existence," but David Oliver says he's just doing his joband still doesn't understand how his small-town police department's Facebook page attracted a worldwide audience. Readers from as far away as Australia, Ireland, and Hong Kong, and from every state in the U.S. "stop by" daily for a virtual cup of coffee with the chief.
Whether he's busting "mopes" (old-fashioned cop slang for criminal types), comforting a teen runaway, or promoting school safety, Oliver's folksy and feisty style connects with readers. He tackles tough issues: The invasion of Meth and other drugs. Drunk driving. School shootings. He champions personal responsibility, and chastises politicians.
"I have a low tolerance for nonsense," Oliver says.
This book collects the best of the chief's politically incorrect essays, delightfully sarcastic letters to criminals, humorous crime reports, inspirational quotes, and more.
Enter the colorful world of the Brimfield PD . . . Where you do NOT want to win a pair of "silver bracelets" and "a trip to the bed-and-breakfast" . . . Where drug mopes are pursued by a "Meth Whisperer" . . . Where dispatch calls might include an APB ("All-Pig Bulletin") . . . And where kids caught bicycling safely are issued ticketsfor free ice cream. If you're not a mope, you'll fit right in!
David Oliver will donate all of his income from this book to the Chief Oliver Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that distributes funds to police department charitable programs and assists juvenile survivors of sexual assault.
