The Dallas police chief who was praised for his response to last summer's shootings of five law enforcement officers is working on a memoir.
Ballantine Books announced Thursday that it had a deal with David O. Brown for a "deeply revealing" book, currently untitled, to come out next year. Brown, who retired in October, received national attention after a sniper killed five officers at a July protest. According to Ballantine, the book will reflect his "measured, motivating" approach to his work.
Brown said in a statement that he hoped to emphasize the importance of trust and "other philosophies" he had developed over the years.
