Cops Don't Cry - A Book of Help and Hope for Police Families

Author: Vali Stone


Vali Stone wrote this book to create an awareness of the demands on both the officer and his or her family; to encourage police chiefs and college trainers in recognizing the importance of family support programs; to reinforce that positive support from the “home front” creates healthier officers both mentally and physically; to recognize the very real fears of family members, including children of all ages; and to offer a realistic and positive perspective on the police lifestyle.
