In the specialized Gang Task Force, Fortier once again shows us the realities of life on the other side of the law, as he infiltrates some of the toughest gangs on the streets. Using his apparent charm to get hardened criminals, drug dealers, and gang members to trust him, he not only makes arrests and gets convictions in court, but he also dodges bullets, engages in a dangerous high-speed chase after witnessing a drive-by, and even plays a key role in stopping a turf war. Reading about these exploits makes you wonder how the force got along before he joined them. The raw language, which only highlights his rough writing skills, for some reason fits in with the down-and-dirty, super-hero-like feats he pulls off.
The book is arranged as a series of chapters highlighting different cases with gangs, and unlike Curbchek, which didn't have any kind of arc, Street Creds feels more like a complete story. Chapter One explains how Fortier became part of the Gang Task Force and his disdain at discovering how mismanaged the department was, and as the chapters progress, he gradually gets to know the individual gang members, which helps him succeed in solving crimes and cleaning up the streets, at least according to him. By the end I almost felt like I knew the author better, and in some strange way, even understood him.Read more ›
Law Enforcement WTF! Moments
The author, an ex gang unit detective, gives the reader a behind-the-scenes look at the gangs from a police perspective. From cultivating informants to befriending the gang members and leaders themselves, the author spins a fantastic tale of what it's like to go against some of the toughest, meanest gangsters on the streets.
This book is full of stories of various crimes and criminals, as well as a peek into the author's emotional state while working the streets. It was a great read.

First, I am appreciative of Mr. Fortier's service as a peace officer. He did an incredibly thankless job for many years and deserves praise for that alone. Unfortunately, Mr. Read morePublished 3 months ago by robert scrivner
Kudos to the officers brave enough to enter the world of the gangs and do their jobs; not a job many would even consider. A very interesting read.Published 5 months ago by Linda Cunningham
