As a naïve rookie, Florida highway patrol trooper trainee Floy Turner wants action and adventure and found it working the midnight shifts in the most violent neighborhoods in Miami, Florida. She learns that it is precisely the danger and extreme adversities she faces that satisfies her adventurous spirit while preparing and equipping her to become a tough, determined, and savvy street cop for the years to come. With her newfound confidence in herself as a cop, she refuses to accept no for an answer when trying to further her career. Driven by a passion to protect and serve beyond the highways and byways of the Florida Highway Patrol, she joins forces with the DEA, FBI, ICE, U.S. Marshal’s service, FDLE, and the K-9 unit to bring down ruthless criminals, dismantle crime organizations, and ultimately shatter the glass ceiling for women in law enforcement.
“Behind Her Miami Badge” is a collaborative effort between Florida Department of Law Enforcement Special Agent (Ret.) Floy Turner and writer/editor and award-winning author Sherrie Clark, a former New York City police officer. Designed to be a book for law enforcement officer and civilian alike that both entertains and informs, this book allows readers to experience crime fighting firsthand while taking them on an exhilarating ride one moment and then giving them an emotional punch the next.
What’s it like to meet someone who has broken multiple glass ceilings? “Behind Her Miami Badge” introduces Floy Turner, a female street-savvy Florida highway patrol trooper who has shattered the glass ceiling for not only women in the prestigious Florida highway patrol but for women in law enforcement in general. Whether it’s facing the barrel of a gun on her first night on patrol, the bloodiest day in FBI history, capturing a notorious headline-making robber/rapist, dialoguing with infamous serial killer Aileen Wournos, suffering through historical hurricane Andrew, disrupting murders, robberies, and a kidnapping, seizing over twelve-million dollars in narcotics in a two-year period, and numerous other anecdotes, Turner uses transparency as she recounts her first action-packed eleven years in law enforcement. The nonstop drama reveals the humor, sadness, and bazaar situations that working cops face every day.
