What is the reality of true police investigations? Does that really matter? How does a detective begin to find a bad guy? What’s it like spending eight hours in a patrol car, to be constantly aware that the next stop may hold life-threatening danger? How dangerous is a jail for an inmate or the police officers working inside?
Is human trafficking of young women and men real? Unfortunately, yes.

Jeff will answer any and questions he can about the reality of being a cop in one of the biggest cities in the world.
