“Guest speaker Lieutenant Patrick Pesce, NYPD, Retired, will be appearing at the Cocoa Beach Library on Thursday April 16th, 2015, at 2 p.m. to discuss his memoir “Blue Memories – Life in Law Enforcement – A Personal History.”
The book chronicles a difficult early childhood, youthful years, and an ensuing Police Career with the New York City Police Department during the 1960’s and 1970’s. His experiences in uniform patrol, plainclothes patrol, narcotics investigations and assignment to the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, working under Rudy Guiliani investigating widespread corruption within the New York City Criminal Justice system, will highlight his discussion.
Comparisons can be seen with today’s trials and tribulations of a law enforcement officer: racial unrest, civil rights demonstrations and riots, student unrest and anti-war demonstrators.
