Uniform Decisions

I happened to learn about the this book, Uniform Decisions, from watching John Caprarelli on a television news interview. I was immediately interested with obtaining and reading this book. The first reason I too was a police officer in the Los Angeles area and served over 30 years. I recently retired. The second reason was the North Hollywood Bank of America robbery. Television captured the events from their news helicopters and a TV audience watched in horror.
Two robbers, armed with fully automatic assault rifles and wearing full body armor, exchanged shots with the police.
One rainy morning I sat down with a cup of coffee and started to read the book. I was unable to put the book down and subsequently finished Uniform Decisions that same day.
Uniform Decisions was not just about the North Hollywood bank robbery. The book was also about John Caprarelli, his wonderful wife, the reasons he became a police officer, his early career as a LAPD officer, and the aftermath.
I was so moved by this book that I went to a John Caprarelli book signing. I bought three extra copies for some of my friends at my department. I recommend this book to everyone.
