Peacemaking

Final COver 2

“LoRusso wrote extensively about officer-involved shootings in his 2013 book When Cops Kill, and in his first work of fiction, he couples that real-world knowledge with a spiritual focus.” — Kirkus Reviews 

Scotty Painter is the most respected member of his police department, having worked his way up from a street cop to deputy chief. After losing his wife, Christine, to cancer and giving his daughter away at her wedding, he now lives alone. His life as a cop is not easy, however, as he is haunted by the misery he has seen and the things he had to do to survive. One day, he finds himself sharing his deepest and most troubling thoughts with the only one who can truly understand his struggles and answer his questions. In a world far apart from his days filled with life and death decisions, Scotty comes face to face with his fears, his faith, and his destiny.

When Cops Kill


“I have been in law enforcement for approximately ten years and I’ve worked in several different assignments. I recently purchased this book as I found the topic interesting and believed it to be relevant for modern law enforcement. However, the material presented went beyond my expectations as it was a comprehensive review of many facets of critical incidents and provided valuable guidance on how to navigate these dynamic moments. I was unable to put the book down until I finished the last page. I immediately called a fellow officer and covered some of the material including new things I had learned which would greatly assist any officer in a critical incident. Not only is this book a must read for any current LEO… I believe this book should be required reading for every peace officer during their initial law enforcement training, either at the academy or in field training.” – Daren J. Hull, Amazon Reviewer

When Cops Kill, a nonfiction book, takes you through an officer involved shooting and the years after.

  • What does it mean to be sued as a law enforcement officer?
  • What will happen during the internal affairs investigation?
  • Should you speak with the homicide division?
  • Will the state licensing agency investigate as well?
  • How will you handle the media coverage and public attention?

Lance removes the fear of the unknown and replaces that fear with the power that comes from knowledge and understanding.
