Soul Of A Black Cop


I thought I would change the header again. This time it is Brian Willingham, a police officer from Flint, Michigan. Rather than push for promotions within the department, Officer Willingham has spent much of his career working in community projects such as the 'March Is Reading' event shown.

"The more I'm involved in various parts of the community, I see that there are good people trying to make a difference against tremendous odds..."

Working with children, he feels, will pay off when they reach 14 or 15 years of age, and they have a positive role-model who knows them and they respect:

"At heart, the kids are good. They just have so many things they are dealing with... ...We need to reach them early."

To find out more about community projects Brian Willingham is involved with, or to buy his book, Soul Of A Black Cop, visit his website.
