Overview
Get a deeper understanding of police shootings through interviews with officers involved in real-life cases

Today's media is filled with discussions about officer-involved shootings. Too often missing from that discussion are the police officers' voices and the reality of what happens in actual shooting incidents. Through interviews with involved officers, this book addresses common myths and misunderstandings about these shootings.

Shots Fired is a journey "behind the shield" and the experiences of the real human beings behind the badge. It explores true events through the participants' own eyes and takes readers inside the minds of officers during the actual event. The officers detail the roller coaster of emotions and severe trauma experienced during and after a shooting event.

Along with the intimate, in-depth explorations of the incidents themselves, the book touches the aftermath of police-involved shootings--the debriefings, internal and external investigations, and psychological evaluations. It challenges many commonly held assumptions created by the media such as the meaning of "unarmed" and why the police can't just "shoot him in the leg," creating an understanding that reaches beyond slogans such as "hands up, don't shoot."

The book is valuable reading for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of police shootings--officers and police departments, reporters and politicians, and the public who rely on the police to keep them safe.
