Atlanta, Georgia – Author and experienced military and civilian law enforcement officer, Khalfani B. Yabuku, announces book titled “When The Thin Blue Line Begins To Blur.” The purpose of the book is to educate and enlighten law enforcement officials in the proper behaviors and conduct to develop better communication and relationships with the communities they serve. The book also serves as a “pulling back of the curtain” on the dynamics of police mentality for the average citizen.
The book details Khalfani’s experience working with the Atlanta Police Department (APD) in Atlanta, Georgia, including his struggles to see that officers adhere to the best security, safety, fairness and constitutionality standards in his 28 years working in the department. Readers will experience real-life action and interaction between a law enforcement officer and his efforts to help correct the wrongdoings and unfavorable systemic practices and policies that pit APD officers against the people they swore to serve and protect.

There is no better time for the APD and the entire US police force to embrace a book like When The Thin Blue Line Begins To Blur more than right now. Tensions are escalating, and simple situations that could be resolved are turning into bloody confrontations that lead to serious injuries and death. Yes, the police are faced with many challenges, but with the right education, information and re-acclimation from experienced cops and leadership, things will get better.
Khalfani B. Yabuku has written this book to help create a positive impact and help law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve better connect and interact. Apart from law enforcement, citizens, lovers of true crime stories, and cultural studies and sociology students and experts would benefit greatly from reading the book.
