New Book

Old Police Stories, LLC announces the latest book from Sgt. Mike Simmons, “Stories of Pensacola’s Finest.”

“The Pensacola Police Department is one of the oldest and most distinguished departments in the United States. Throughout its long and rich history, many stories are made by the officers who are in the community every day. Some of the stories are funny, some are heroic, some are sad, but all of them are noteworthy.

Each day, many officers take to the streets to serve and protect the citizens of Pensacola with integrity and professionalism. They see things that are good, bad, and extraordinary. Very often, the thought goes through their minds, “This is so astonishing that no one will believe it!” Many times, I have made the statement, “Anyone who is a police officer for five years can write a book!”  

In many history books, the stories of the leaders and commanders are told, and rightfully so. They are the ones who decide the direction of the organizations. But in such cases, the richness, the personality, the makeup of the organization is overlooked. This book seeks to document these stories from the perspective of the officer or his/her families, friends, or co-workers. It is my prayer that you can see the tragedies, comedies, and adventures through the eyes of those closest to it.”
