Abstract:
The 1970’s was the deadliest decade in modern law enforcement history and more police officers died than during any other decade of the 20th Century. In Fort Lauderdale, the “Venice of America,” violent crime was almost out of control and to stem this vicious tide the Fort Lauderdale Police Department created the Tactical Impact Unit. Written with all the drama and excitement of a novel, Badge 149 – ‘Shots Fired!’ tells the true story of this small group of men and of the daring exploits that made them so well-known and respected.

  WOW , 11/20/2006
Reviewer: Brian Dodge
This book is a must read! Not just for those in law enforcement but those who want to get a “glimpse” at just how difficult the “JOB” can be. Jones depicts the right feelings and thoughts that happen when an officer is in a stressful situation and just serves as a reminder how much law enforcement does for our community. GREAT READING!!!!

Reviewer: vicki benoit
Gary Jones wrote this book from a perspective few sew of police officers…we are human. Many books depict us as hardcore and uncaring. This books reveals the hard work, dedication, the emotions up and down, and the frustration and fears we all experience.

  As Real As It Gets , 10/17/2006
Reviewer: Tom Woolsey
As a former member of the Tactical Impact Unit I have to say that this book put me right back into the incidents that Gary depicted in the chapters. The greatest and most dedicated group of people I have had the privilege of knowing. T.I.U. established guidelines for future special units in law enforcement.

Reviewer: Major Jim Eskew
An outstanding portrayal of the fight against criminal events unfolding in real life drama. This comes from a very dedicated officer alone with his thoughts as he trys to right wrongs and protect the community within which we live. His courage, honesty and desire to defeat the bad guys and protect the victims, is an inspiration to us all. ‘Shots fired’ is a MUST read!
