If a group of police officers in the Beverly Hills Police Department met for coffee and old stories, their conversation would be much like the humorous and eye-opening new book, "Echoes from the Beats: Beverly Hills Cops Tell Their Stories." Fifty-three true tales written by retired and working officers make up this new book by Dick Clason, a 30-year veteran of the force. Told by the officers that lived them, the stories in "Echoes from the Beats" present the sometimes shocking events that take place in this California city with details that only veteran officers can recall. Personal insight, years of experience and a deep sense of duty to protect the citizens of Beverly Hills is evident throughout this unique collection. From AuthorHouse, this book is avilable in bookstores nationwide.
