by Cheryl Dorsey

True story of an African-American female whose LAPD career spanned twenty years under the command of police chiefs Daryl Gates, Willie Williams and Bernard Parks. Retired LAPD sergeant Cheryl Dorsey worked exclusively in patrol and specialized units in all four geographic Bureaus within Los Angeles; South, Central, West and Valley. In addition to various patrol division assignments, Sgt. Dorsey was assigned to traffic division, Newton Area vice and the infamous gang unit in Operations South Bureau; known as Community Resources Against Street Hoodlums (C.R.A.S.H.) Sgt. Dorsey's experiences form the basis for her second book, The Creation of A Social Advocate. Sgt. Dorsey exposes institutional police abuses and social justice disparities, while introducing strategies to systematically attack those injustices and empower audiences on how to navigate within that system, when necessary, and help change that system, when possible. "As an advocate for those who continue to suffer racial injustices, disproportionate and selective enforcement, intolerance at the hands of a police force that swore an oath to protect and serve yet seems to lack empathy and compassion in certain areas of the community; I am here for you. It may not be you right now- but you might be next." - Ret. LAPD Sgt. Cheryl Dorsey We have Cheryl's account and her contributions to law enforcement. That is change. And part of the solution she reminds the reader, is us; our education about law enforcement and how to deal with our encounters with them. There is reason to be optimistic. After all, we have Cheryl Dorsey. - Dr. Drew "Cheryl speaks truth to power in an unbought fashion exposing a system of lies and corruption. Every civil rights advocate must read this book, it's a game changer " Attorney Ben Crump "With truth, compassion, courage and wit, Sgt. Cheryl Dorsey tells the oftentimes gritty tale of life behind the LAPD badge. Her transparency, as she lifts the lid off the boiling pot of police corruption, abuse and killings, is remarkably brave." - Rolonda Watts, Journalist, Author of Destiny Lingers "Courageous, bold, and strong woman. Powerful read " - Dr. Tiffany Crutcher (twin sister of Terence Crutcher killed by Tulsa OK police)
