Read what others are saying about BEHIND HER MIAMI BADGE:

“BEHIND HER MIAMI BADGE is a gripping, honest memoir of a housewife with a taste for crime shows and adventure who decides to turn cop in the early eighties—a time when women were not welcomed in law enforcement. Her ultimate rise from working the midnight shift in the bowels of Liberty City as an FHP trooper to finally landing her dream career position as a Special Agent with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement— all while raising two young daughters—is nothing short of inspiring. Floy Turner doesn’t leave out the gritty, hilarious, sad, bittersweet details on her journey to succeed in a male dominated profession, headquartered, ironically, in the good-ole-boy South.”

Refreshingly insightful and the non-fictionalized rendering of law enforcement life—a brotherhood and a sisterhood. Turner and Clark were there, made their bones, and were members of the vanguard that made women in law enforcement what it is today. A great read!

Turner’s pursuit of justice reminds you that this is a “cop” book, but her sense of humor and compassion shows her human, and yes, vulnerable side. You’ll have no choice but to bond to Turner as she takes you on the roller-coaster ride of police work. I’m proud of Turner and her willingness to share her stories in BEHIND HER MIAMI BADGE!

“As a woman who worked as a federal law enforcement officer for 20 years in Miami, I couldn’t put BEHIND HER MIAMI BADGE down till I read it all. It is truly an accurate account of what the job entailed. I was especially drawn to the descriptions of the emotions, when one minute you are bored and tired to suddenly feeling the adrenaline rush and nerves as a situation escalated, and then the drained and exhausted feeling when the danger was over.”

“A female trooper in the Florida Highway Patrol in 1983 was not a familiar sight. We were not always welcomed by our fellow coworkers and many times unwanted by the public we swore to serve and protect. BEHIND HER MIAMI BADGE is a factual accounting by Floy Turner, who was bound and determined to change those attitudes by showing that a woman could carry out the duties of a Florida Trooper. Her reflections in this book will make you laugh, make you cry, and will inspire you. It is a quick and brilliant read.”

“Floy Turner’s memoir is outstanding on several fronts: First it provides a snapshot of the era in U.S. history when women were first entering formerly all-male fields. More importantly, amidst today’s controversy about America’s police practices, BEHIND HER MIAMI BADGE shows how one woman managed to do a difficult job with intelligence and humanity. Her war stories are often humorous and always illuminating, a darn good read.”

“BEHIND HER MIAMI BADGE takes a realistic look at the emotional and psychological turmoil that women in law enforcement face. Floy describes the commonality of concerns that rotating shifts, high-risk assignments, mandatory overtime, and working in a male-dominated environment will have on her children and spouse or partner. She describes the discrimination by male colleagues and supervisors who jealously guard their traditionally male-dominated territory, and by wives of male colleagues who resent another female spending so much time with their husbands.
       “Floy doesn’t romanticize the job; instead she accurately depicts what women in law enforcement face, physically, psychologically, and emotionally. She also accurately depicts the rewards of being a woman in law enforcement.
       “BEHIND HER MIAMI BADGE is a book that should be read by every woman who is considering a career in law enforcement and by every woman who has been in law enforcement.”
