400 Things Cops Know Media Kit

Written by veteran police sergeant Adam Plantiga, 400 Things Cops Know shows police work as cops experience it — life of danger, frustration, occasional triumph, bizarre encounters, and plenty of grindingly hard routine work. In a laconic, no-nonsense, dryly humorous style, Plantinga tells what he’s learned from 13 years as a patrolman, from the everyday to the exotic — how to know at a glance when a suspect is carrying a weapon or is going to attack, how to kick a door down, how to drive in a car chase without recklessly endangering the public, why you should always carry cigarettes, even if you don’t smoke (offering a smoke is the best way to lure a suicide to safety), and what to do if you find a severed limb (don’t put it on ice — you need to keep it dry). Sometimes heartbreaking, often hilarious, and full of unexpected truths, 400 Things Cops Know is an eye-opening revelation of how police experience life on the beat.
