According to the book description of Michael Jaquish’s A Novel Life: The Evolution of a Pacifist Cop, “Three shots from an AK-47 pierced the air from a distant cluster of palms just north of our compound wall. I turned to exchange glances with the half dozen other members of the departing diplomatic staff as the last of three hundred US Marines in jungle fatigues and full combat gear dashed down the ramp at the rear of the aircraft. Despite the nearby roar of the rotating helicopter blades, I could hear the American Ambassador for the Liberian Mission addressing us.

"Some of you have heard," he began, with a dour expression, "of this Prince Johnson fellow's threat to shoot our helicopters out of the sky. Well, you needn't worry. We have the situation covered. I am informed that anyone firing upon any of our aircraft will be instantly dealt with in the severest fashion possible. No West African rebel leader will be interfering with the safe evacuation of our personnel on my watch. May God go with you all; good bye... and good luck."

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a cop, a Merchant Marine or a spy rubbing shoulders with ambassadors, mercenaries and gold and diamond smugglers in South America, Asia and Africa surrounded by revolution and political intrigue? This is a journey of revelation that packs three lifetimes into one, overflowing with unexpected events and adventures. The author shares his journey beginning with his birth so you can discover for yourself what it takes to form a man into the kind of person who moves through life on a path that carries him all over the globe in search of personal destiny. It will astound you as it challenges you to explore and expand your own boundaries and perspectives of life, spirituality, family, love and relationships. How do we recognize and capture opportunities and how do we live with the consequences of our choices? The author finds his answer in the midst of chaos and struggle and he shares his thoughts on personal and spiritual growth as he tells his story.”

According to one reader of In Tales of a Country Cop In Africa, “Michael Jaquish gives the reader an intimate experience of a "man's world", including the searing soul sacrifices of a man who holds his personal Code of Honor as his guiding principle. This book is more than a compilation of stories of a man of adventure. It is the story of a man's courage to face life's most difficult decisions on his terms. I am far from politically conservative. Neither am I a huge fan of the military, nor a fan of the use of violence as vehicle for entertainment, but Jaquish's articulation of his remarkable journey, his choices, his heartbreaks, his losses and his victories have allowed me, the reader and a woman, into the rarified world of a Hero's Code of Ethics. I feel privileged to have witnessed this Hero's Journey and I would recommend this read to anyone who wants to touch into the intimate world of the psyche of a man faced with the unimaginable: from the separation from his beloved young daughters, to the forced abandonment of his imperiled lover, to civil war carnage that he was forced to witness and helpless to prevent, the author's strength, his sacrifices, and his vulnerabilities are unforgettable. I think this book should be renamed: "Beyond Courage.”

The retired Chief of Police of the Okanogan Police Department (Washington), Michael Jaquish has degrees in Business Administration and Law Enforcement.  His book, “Tales of a Country Cop in Africa,” traces the experiences of a Jaquish, a small-town cop, who, following a divorce, retired from law enforcement to pursue a career in international diplomatic security and intelligence.  In 1989, he traveled to Liberia, West Africa, where, shortly after his arrival, savagery and revolution exploded across the West African countryside.

 

He spent the next seven years conducting security & intelligence operations for the US Embassy, NASA, USAID, Voice of America, United Nations, European Union and a variety of other government and private companies. Michael’s duties carried him to Liberia, The Gambia, Sierra Leone and Morocco and he often worked in the midst of civil war and political unrest. In the fall of 1997 he returned to the United States where he has worked primarily as a trainer and consultant for security companies such as BRINK’S, Incorporated, Blackwater USA, Pierce County Security and various fugitive recovery operations. Since the terrorist attacks on America on September 11, 2001, Michael has been deeply committed to raising the bar for professionalism within the private security industry.

 

Drawing from his law enforcement, academic and private security experience Michael Jaquish has also written, “The Role of the Security Officer.”  This work is “an excellent choice for individuals, private consultants or college instructors searching for an appropriate student textbook that covers the fundamentals of basic security guard training. It is written in a lively and creative style that quickly grabs and holds the attention of the reader while covering the full range of fundamentals of the armed and unarmed security guard profession. The book was written to cover requirements of Washington State Armed and Unarmed Guard licensing training requirements but it meets or exceeds training needs in other states as well.”

 

Michael Jaquish has also ventured into the realm of a science fiction writer with “Time Loves a Hero.”   The book is billed as “a fast-paced science fiction novel written in the style of the early sci-fi writers. The story begins with a young couple (Troy and Dorian) in North Bend, Washington who are abducted by "Aliens" in a silver flying saucer. The plot takes an unexpected twist when the couple learns how inaccurate their initial impressions are.”

 

Michael can be contacted via his website at www.countrycopbooks.com. There he writes about current global and domestic politics and events and publishes his opinions on his blog, Stranger in a Strange Land.

According the book description of Michael Jaquish’s the Role of the Security Officer: A Comprehensive Instruction Manual of Safety and Security for the Security Profession in America, “Topics covered include: Crime & Loss Prevention, Security Guards & the Criminal Justice System, Legal Powers & Limitations, Security Observation & Awareness, EEO, Diversity, Workplace Violence, Homeland Security, Safeguarding & Sharing Information, Terrorism & Surveillance, Patrol Procedures, Access Control, Emergency Response, OSHA Life Safety & Accident Prevention, Communication, Report Writing, Armed Guard Firearms Safety & Training, Use of Deadly Force, Marksmanship, Defensive Driving, Armored Truck Security, Diplomatic Security & Blending In, Handcuffs & Handcuffing.

The Role of the Security Officer is an excellent choice for individuals, private consultants or college instructors searching for an appropriate student textbook that covers the fundamentals of basic security guard training. It is written in a lively and creative style that quickly grabs and holds the attention of the reader while covering the full range of fundamentals of the armed and unarmed security guard profession. The book was written to cover requirements of Washington State Armed and Unarmed Guard licensing training requirements but it meets or exceeds training needs in other states as well.

There are summaries & quiz questions at the end of each chapter and a final exam that covers the entire book. A power point CD version of the book is available to assist instructors by contacting the author via his website.

Michael Jaquish has nearly thirty years of management and training experience in for the domestic and international law enforcement and private security guard fields.”

According to a reader of The Role of the Security Officer it “is an excellent tool in today’s security conscious world. Factual and current, for beginners or experienced security minded professionals or just the average Joe, this book has it all. If you are thinking of making Law enforcement or security your profession this is a must read. Thanks Mike for a great guide to our profession.”
