Book Review-Tarnish of the Badge by Jerry Summers

Jerry Summers holds an undergraduate degree in pastoral ministry and a master’s degree in business administration in marketing from the University of Liverpool, United Kingdom.  Summers also has extensive experience in the various law enforcement fields.

Tarnishing of the Badge is Summer’s first venture into non-fiction. The book sets forth the theory that our law enforcement system is sliding into a state of moral decay. Summers opens his book with the Law Enforcement Code of Ethics, defines the crises and continues with both supporting information and personal opinion. His opinions are based on years within the law enforcement field, as well as time spent outside of the field.

Tarnishing of the Badge raised some very provocative questions about our law enforcement system. I would recommend this book to all members of our society.
