I can’t thank everyone enough for their supportive comments regarding the cease and desist order for my book cover. Putting the two badges on my cover was an artistic choice to represent my service as a deputy from N.Y. to L.A. This is a memoir of my police career, thirty years with the L.A. Sheriff’s department. The ridiculousness of the department not wanting me to use an actual image of the badge I wore is obvious. I could have just as easily used a picture of the state of N.Y. and the state of Ca. It doesn’t change my story. Others have blurred or otherwise altered the image to get around the trademark issue. I chose not to use the department’s image. Thanks to the many who have read the book and left such fantastic reviews on Amazon.
