This is a true story about a World War II veteran who becomes a cop, a New York City Transit cop.
Over thirty-five years, from his early days as a Court Officer through to his days as commanding officer of some high profile districts in the Transit Police Department, the stories and adventures of this innovative leader will continue to intrigue readers. A biographical work describing the journey of Captain John Martin through his years of service as a police officer in the City of New York, it is a story about a native New Yorker who joined the New York City Transit Police Department after service in the United States Navy during World War II. It's a story about how he and his partner helped to make the Transit Police Force one of the finest, and one of the biggest, in the country. It's a story about how these two guys charmed the Mayor of the City of New York, upset at least two City Police Commissioners, and forced the City of New York to provide improved police protection for the riding and general public.
Finally, it's a study in human relations and what it takes to provide effective leadership.
