 Lieutenant Borrello is the book author of Oral Interview Dynamics as well as numerous multi-subject law enforcement articles with topics covering police promotion, training and advanced officer development, police terminology, felony car stops, impact weapon selection, community oriented policing, and the Internet.

According to the book description of Oral Interview Dynamics, The contents of this book are designed specifically for law enforcement officers, front-line supervisors, and managers who have reached the point in their careers where they are ready to advance their rank. The focus of this information is on the police promotional oral interview. In a majority of police agencies across the country the oral interview is both the most critical part of the promotion process and the most difficult.

An officers performance during the oral interview is paramount because the process is highly competitive. Officers must out-score others also vying for promotion. This is difficult in that candidates may be competing against dozens or even hundreds of other police personnel many of whom may have greater education or more experience.

The goal of this book is to provide professional police officers with a highly effective and valuable preparatory edge. This edge translates into real-world techniques, easy-to-apply skills, and a wealth of information on how to be distinctive and perform in an exceptional manner during the oral interview. The police officer or supervisor who utilizes the content of this book correctly will stand out among the other candidates, will be recognized, acknowledged and will receive higher scores than those who entered the promotional process without such preparation.
