“The hardest thing about being a police officer is you have to solve everyone else’s problems when you can’t even solve your own.”
This book is an unedited and raw journal written by a police officer over a thirty-year period. From his first day in the police academy to his last day as the Chief of Police in Middletown, Ohio, home of Hillbilly Elegy, you will feel as though you are right there with the author through the entire book, in a uniform, in a cruiser, and in his personal life.
Never written to be released to the public, this easy to read format portrays the actual unfiltered personal journals of Chief Rodney Muterspaw, an award-winning Ohio Police Chief and Congressional guest at the Presidential State of the Union. You will feel the gamut of emotions as you follow him as a rookie, a patrol officer, investigator, narcotics officer, internal affairs supervisor, a Chief of Police, and a parent in one of the most well-known smaller cities in the Midwest.
The Blue View will draw you in emotionally, as you will finally have access to the behind-the-scenes thoughts and experiences that most police officers will not talk about. It doesn’t matter what side you are on, it is a must read. It will change the way you think about law enforcement.
