New Review - Curb Chek by Zach Fortier

This was an entertaining look at the life of a street cop.  Nothing is sugarcoated.  Instead, the author allows the readers to see all the nuts and bolts of working the beat.  Zach Fortier pulls no punches as he exposed the daily life of a police officer.  You can't help but laugh at some parts but there were also brutal and heartbreaking scenes that brought on the tears.  This book was a brutally honest and refreshing look into a world that is often hidden from ordinary citizens

Zach Fortier not only deals with the crime faced on the streets but also to in-fighting and jealousy that exists within the police department.  Fortier also exposes the gritty politics that permeates every level of law enforcement.  It was eyeopening and, at times, infuriating.

This book is a highly recommended read not only for someone who is contemplating the law enforcement field but also for anyone who wants to read a REAL portrayal of law enforcement.
