Donna Wudyka was hired by the Detroit Police Department in 1987. She retired
from it, on a duty-related disability, in 1997. Donna Wudyka’s book is Shattered Badges, Broken Hearts: An Officer's Nightmare. The
book is the true-life account of a January 1996 officer-involved-shooting that claimed the life of police officer Patrick
Prohm. According to Donna Wudyka, her book, “describes the aftermath of
the shooting, and the hell that the City of Detroit put my partner and I through: Injustice, discrimination, harassment, numerous
violations of the union contract, embarrassment, and mental anguish. My partner and I thought the incident was traumatic enough.
Wait until you see what came after it.”
