Ron DeLord is the co-author of Texas Lawmen, 1835-1899: The Good and the Bad; Police Association Power, Politics, and Confrontation: A Guide for the Successful Police Labor Leader; and, Police Union Power, Politics, and Confrontation in the 21st Century: New Challenges, New Issues.

According to the book description of Texas Lawmen, 1835-1899: The Good and the Bad, “The tally of Texas lawmen killed in the line of duty during the state's first sixty-five years of organized law enforcement is truly staggering. From Texas Rangers the likes of Silas Mercer Parker Jr., gunned down at Parker's Fort in 1836, to Denton County sheriff's deputy Floyd Coberly, murdered by an inmate in 1897 after ten days on the job, this collection accounts for all of those unsung heroes. Not merely an attempt to retell a dozen popular peace officer legends, Texas Lawmen, 1835-1899 represents thousands of hours of research conducted over more than a decade. Ronald DeLord and Cliff Caldwell have carefully assembled a unique and engaging chronicle of Texas history.”

One reader of Police Union Power, Politics, and Confrontation in the 21st Century: New Challenges, New Issues said, “I have met and listened to Ron DeLord many times. Despite being on opposite sides of the Globe the philosophies remain the same when dealing with the politics of achieving entitlements for Law Enforcement officers. Ron's latest book makes compelling reading and explains the practicalities on how to achieve positive outcomes. Despite reading his latest edition I won’t be passing it on for anyone else. It remains in my office's bookcase for future reference..”
