about

Following The Streets Are Blue, this book, More Than Heroic, marks the second installment in a series of true tales of service from the front lines of the Los Angeles Police Department. 

In this book, the realities of police work are captured through the spoken words of thirty former officers with the Los Angeles Police Department. The most powerful aspect of their words is that they reveal the individuals behind the badge, the individuals you call when in need. The officers, like others who serve in law enforcement, willingly answered the call to put themselves in harm’s way to protect and serve. 

As you read their stories, hopefully you will appreciate the sacrifices these extraordinary individuals made and, through their stories, the sacrifices others have made during their careers with the Los Angeles Police Department.

Gary Farmer served on the Los Angeles Police Department from 1975 to 2007. His thirty plus years included assignments in patrol, vice, gangs, and detectives, and he worked Wilshire, Seventy-Seventh, and Hollywood Divisions among others. His son is currently on the Los Angeles Police Department. This is his second book.
