According to the book description of U.F. 16 A.K.A. Nothing to Report,
“U.F. 16 is the official name for a police officer’s memo book. It is carried by patrol officers and used to record
their assignment and any action taken during their tour. Some officers felt that the less they wrote is the way to go so that
they would not be questioned about an entry they made. Others would write more to make it easier to recall or cover their
rear end in case there is a controversy.
In this fascinating book, Moran reveals his past assignments taken from a
total of sixty-seven memo books both old and new where entries were made. It covers sixteen years, including eleven years
in communications division when memo entries were not required. Browse through the intriguing pages of U.F. 16 and experience
exciting days as well as quiet times when there was nothing to report!"
One reader of U.F. 16 A.K.A. Nothing to Report said,
“I come from a family of police officers and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Having first hand knowledge of what things
come up on a day to day basis for the "cop" on the beat, I found this chronicle to be open, honest and very informative.
Hopefully, relatives and friends of officers who read this, will have a better understanding of the diverse duties these brave
men and women face every day.”
