According to the book description of Code 33: True California Cop Stories from the 1970s, "What was it like to be a California Cop in the 1970s? Code 33 is the police radio code for clear the air for officers involved in an emergency situation. During the 1970s, being a cop in San Francisco and Santa Cruz County meant dealing with hippies and drugs, prostitutes and pimps, psychopaths and terrorists. Code 33 charts a path right through that scene through the eyes and experiences of one cop, Tom Wamsley. And it does so with frankness and good humor. Not all of a cop's activities involve a Code 33, but they all say something about the world in which we live. Cops are the front line defense in protecting society from crime, but what is the world like through a cop's eyes? Code 33 provides a glimpse that veteran cops will recognize and even those unfamiliar with police work will find intriguing."
