Retired FBI Agent John Wills Publishes Collection of Stories By Women in Law Enforcement

John Wills

John Wills, a retired FBI agent, former Chicago cop and award winning author, has cranked out his latest book: “Women Warriors: Stories from the Thin Blue Line.”

The book is described on his website as  “a compelling collection” of true stories about women in law enforcement from the radio dispatcher to a courageous lone officer staring down the barrel of a gun inside a crowded department store.

The book is set to be released on Tuesday.

It features police officers, federal agents, chaplains, corrections officers and dispatchers.

Wills’ web page says that the women “all share their stories, each one written in their own hand. The diverse tales will make you laugh, cry and cheer as these Women Warriors face unknown danger during their shifts.”

Wills, who in 2011 published his third suspense novel “Targeted”, won First Place in the fiction novel category at the 2011 Writing Competition held by the the Public Safety Writers Association in Las Vegas in July 2011.

 

FBI Agents Forced From Positions to be Compensated Under Deal with Congress

Current and retired FBI agents who were forced from their supervisory positions because of a 2004 policy will be compensated under a deal between Congress and the bureau, the FBI Agents Association announced today.

The agency said a total of $6.4 million will be spread out in varying amounts to 94 supervisory special agents who were affected by a policy known as “Up or Out.”

The 2004 policy limited squad supervisors to five years in field offices. After that, they had a few options: transfer to FBI headquarters in Washington, compete for select promotions, accept a demotion or retire.

“While the Bureau has yet to fulfill a prior commitment to assist all those negatively affected by the Policy, we do want to report measurable progress on the effort to address some of the unfortunate consequences of the Up or Out policy,” the FBIAA wrote in a statement.

Under the deal, the SSAs who will be compensated must have been in their positions by 2001.

By ALYSSA CHOINIERE
Daily American Staff Writer

Even the most tragic of stories needs a hero so that the listeners can eventually make sense of its ending.

The passengers of Flight 93 were those heroes for Americans on Sept. 11.

For the FBI investigators, the actions of the Flight 93 passengers made sense of the tragedy in ways they never could have anticipated.

“This was the most important site for our investigation,” FBI digital Evidence Section Chief Todd McCall said. “This is where we tied everything together.”

Members of the Flight 93 FBI investigation and recovery team spoke Sunday about their investigation as part of the “Learning Centers Without Walls” panel discussions at the Flight 93 National Memorial. The investigators’ stories started out that morning like the stories of most every other American old enough to remember the day.

The Next Generation Identification program, which is expected to be rolled out nationwide by 2014, matches surveillance images of known criminals, reports CNET.

The system is designed to compare a photo to the FBI’s database of mugshots to identify suspects.
