Taylor Sterling never knows when a phone call or email will grab his interest and send him spiraling into another dark episode of police misconduct in a town he’s never known. The case could involve sexual misconduct by a malignant cop, overzealous use of force by a SWAT unit, corruption, or mismanagement. Since retiring as a Deputy Chief with the Los Angeles Police Department, Taylor found himself investigating the nasty work of bad cops or top cops who weren’t minding the business their agencies charged them to do. Taylor is really doing the work that Internal Affairs—those who police the police—should be doing, but aren’t. This is your chance to learn how to police cops who go off radar and abuse their badges and the sworn oath to “protect and serve.” Shattered Badges is a dark and exciting look into police misconduct and the inner workings of police departments across the country.
