Santa Ana, CA: Graphic Publishers, 2013. Octavo, 248 pages, illustrated, color pictorial softcovers. An exciting, fascinating and human look into the life of a lawman during this most historic era in Los Angeles, California, MY LIFE AS A LAWMAN chronicles the 32-year career of a veteran member of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, beginning in 1965. Retired Sergeant John Kocis relies on his vast experience and seemingly endless recollections of times past—good, bad, happy and sad. Just a few of the high-profile incidents in which he participated are the Watts Riots in 1965, security for the Manson Family trials, the East L.A. Riots of 1970-71, the UC Santa Barbara Riots in Isla Vista in 1970, and the aftermath of the brutal murders of four young CHP officers that same year. Fascinating reading, and an insider's look into the world of law enforcement. You'll LOVE this book—Order it today!

This fellow officer knows what he wrote about and HAS great morals, ethics, and values to show YOU the reader what really happened in those TIMES GONE BY. Boy, did he bring back so many memories - for I worked with many of the same people, attitudes, and demeanor he so vividly wrote about. Give him 5 Stars!
His ability to record these events in a well researched and articulate manner, will leave a legacy for all time as to the role of law enforcement in general, and the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department in particular.
Outstanding! I recommend this text to all, given how well it will be received.
