Meet the Author Event

<span class="font-size-m"><span style="color: #0000CD;"><em><strong>Meet the Author Event</strong></em></span></span>

Alley Evola is coming to MCML to talk about her latest book, So You Want To Be a Cop What Everyone Should Know Before Entering a Law Enforcement Career. Enjoy a delightful afternoon with the author at the free program at 1:00 pm. A book signing will follow.

About her book:
Many children, from the time they are old enough to be attracted to a siren and flashing lights, dream their whole lives of becoming a police officer. As a retired police officer, herself, Alley Evola looks at the daily ins and outs of the job of a police officer. From recruitment, life at the academy, patrol and eventually promotion, she provides a helpful understanding of what you can really expect. She also looks at the current issues, including race and gender, and how these have shaped certain expectations from the public that a police officer needs to be prepared for when working in this field.

When you’re young and dreaming you don’t think about the process it will take to become a police officer. And it’s also not evident until after the police academy the many challenges and issues you will face in the field. So You Want to Be a Cop is for everyone who secretly wishes they were a police officer, or is pursuing their dream in hopes of transforming it into reality.

About the author:
Alley Evola is a retired, nine-year veteran of a mid-size police department in Middle Tennessee. She worked her way up the ranks as a patrol officer, crime scene technician, field training officer, flex unit (street level gang/narcotics unit) officer, and detective assigned to the major crimes unit. She graduated from the Tennessee Law Enforcement Training Academy and maintains her P.O.S.T. (Peace Officer’s Standards and Training Commission) Certification in the State of Tennessee. Aside from her law enforcement career she is also the author of A Simple Warrant Service, that appears with a collection of short stories in American Blue.
