Behind the Texas Badge


We wanted to do something for Texas law enforcement. This book project has been a year-long labor of love. Doug, a retired 39-year Texas peace officer, and Carol, a writer and photographer, traveled all over Texas, logging almost 15,000 miles, to photograph and interview 103 Texas law enforcement officers in all forms. The result is a coffee table book full of unique officer portraits, images of badges, shoulder patches, squad cars, firearms, and more. The officers' stories, told in their own words, are the heart and soul of the book. Walk a mile in their boots. See what they see and feel what they feel. Buy the book that speaks from the heart of Texas law enforcement.
