Vernon B. Williams III is a senior citizen and a life long Chicagoan. He grew up on the south side, went to college and earned a Masters Degree in Public Administration, joined the Chicago Police Department and retired as a Sergeant in 1993, after 36 years of dedicated service. He is an avid golfer, duplicate bridge player, amateur artist and musician, private security licensee and journal writer. The journal writing began when he and his wife, Mykei joined a journal writing class at the Chicago Cultural Center in 1999. For lack of a better subject, he started writing about his police experiences. His initial writings were praised and encouraged by his classmates and also his teacher and mentor, Ms. Elinor B. Perry. This book is a compendium of Vernon’s writings.
