About The Book
About the Book
Rebecca carefully pulls back the curtain to expose the raw emotions of police officers after having been forced to kill another human being. Likewise, Rebecca presents the stark reality faced by survivors who encounter the devastating “knock at the door.” From the onset of the death notification through the cold reality of an autopsy report, we learn what it’s like for survivors who are left with the overwhelming sorrow of realizing how someone they loved purposely chose to die at the hands of another.
As a police officer involved in three critical shooting incidents, I found this book to be of great value. I wish it had been available sooner. Hopefully, Rebecca’s work will motivate the leadership within Police Departments to evaluate and develop appropriate protocols to help officers, survivors, and the community learn how to effectively work through such potentially devastating events.
