Former SCMPD detective holds book signing at Rachael’s restaurant

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Former Savannah-Chatham Metro Homicide Detective Kevin Grogan held a book signing Friday night at Rachael's restaurant on King George Boulevard.

Grogan's work, "Black Sheep, White Cop" is a no-holds-barred look at the what he calls the rise and fall of the Metro department between 2006 and 2015.

In the book, Grogan talks about a time when police were allowed to be much more aggressive with gangs and other violent offenders. Ferguson, Missouri and other recent police shootings put an end to that.

However, the book also talks about Metro cops as honorable men and women with your best interests at heart.

"I just wanted to remind people, especially in this book, that misconduct while it occurs is very much the exception, not the rule. The majority of police officers, especially in Savannah, are out there doing their job. They're working harder than most people realize and even appreciate," said Grogan.

He says he's sold nearly 1,000 copies of the book so far and it was just released last month. You can get a copy of "Black Sheep, White Cop" at most local, independent booksellers in town.
