According to the book description of A Darker Shade of Blue: From Public Servant to Professional Deviant; Policing's Special Operations Culture, “Policing's Special Operations Culture sneaks you behind the badge, revealing the mystique of police culture's "Thin Blue Line." Come on-duty, undercover and after hours as Chief Scott Silverii escorts you through a multi-year, cross-country examination into the fraternity of law enforcement. Ever wonder what it's like to join the force? Now you will discover what becoming a Brother of the Badge means, and the effects of belonging has on the actual people behind the shield. Becoming blue involves a powerful socialization process sometimes leading once ethical, by-the-book public servants into a secret subculture engaged in deviant behaviors bumping up to anti-social activities and criminalistic conduct. Chief Silverii is recruiting you for a first-in-a-lifetime mission. This highly decorated police veteran of over 22 years, spent 16 of those working in the SOG of undercover narcotics and SWAT. His sacrifices made in the SOG uniquely allows him access where no other researcher may go; Deep undercover to find officers evolving into the Darker Shades of Blue. Lock & Load, you with me?”
