Tough Cop: Mike Chitwood Vs. The 'Scumbags'
Stephanie Farr at the Philadelphia Daily News offers a piece on Harold J. Gullan's new book on Upper Darby PA Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood.
You can read the piece via the below link:
The book's publisher, Camino, offers the below:
Follow Mike Chitwood as he becomes the most decorated officer in Philadelphia police history, defying death in critical hostage negotiations and emerging as a key figure in an international high-profile case—he found the body of Ira Einhorn’s former girlfriend, Holly Maddux. Chitwood went on to a compelling career, heading police departments in three very different localities. He is still fighting crime today after half a century in law enforcement. As the legendary John Timoney has said, “Nobody does this better than Mike.”
Note: Like Michael Chitwood, I grew up on Oregon Avenue in South Philly. I'm reading the interesting book now and I plan to interview Michael Chitwood. I'll post the interview here in the near future.
